What is the connection between a national character and historical development and geographical environment in the van Loon? This lively, interesting geographical book perhaps, you can find the answer. After a brief introduction to the basic knowledge of geography, the author according to the country were described in the geographical environment, focusing on the analysis of the evolution of geography and history, national character influence on the formation of the crowd, so this is a book about the "human" geography book. I tried to write a "human" geography, because I believe, importance of any piece of land depends solely on the people of this land to the scientific, commercial, religious or something of an art form for all the contributions made by all human beings regardless of the size of the happiness. The book carefully inserted in a rich picture of geography, history, transfer information for you directly, make you a better, more intuitive understanding of van Loon, understanding of van Loon geography.
