Publisher: University of Minnesota Libraries Publishing. This book approaches each region in a well-organized, comprehensive way. Regions are introduced using standard geographic factors such as the Koppen climate typology, geology, and the affects of weather. Geographic interpretations of population, Geographic interpretations of population, language, religion and other areas of study are also covered well for each region. I found the text to be accurate.

Because travel was difficult in the ancient world, and most people, with the exception of merchants and sailors, rarely traveled far from the homes of their birth, knowledge of the world was very limited. But with the reign of peace brought about under Augustus, Strabo changed all that when he traveled extensively in what was then the known world. He traveled throughout Asia Minor, into Egypt to the border of Ethiopia, into Tuscany, and many other parts of Europe. What Strabo's Geographica did was to combine the knowledge of the land and topography of regions with anthropological information, which proved invaluable to all future students of history, philosophy and science.
