Regional Geography : Current Developments and Future Prospects, Hardback Book

Regional Geography : Current Developments and Future Prospects Hardback

Edited by Ron Johnston, Joost Hauer, G. Hoekveld

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Social and Cultural Geography series

Description

This book urges the case for reinstating regional geography as a contemporary and relevant methodology.

Much interest was shown in the 1980s in reviving, yet restructuring, the field of regional geography.

The essays in this book both review that work and propose a way forward.

The essays divide into three sections. The first assesses traditional regional geography and its relevance to the study of contemporary situations; the second, the alternative approaches of world-systems analysis, diffusion and structuration theory.

The book concludes by considering the potential of regional geography to interpret the structures within which society operates and its claim to remain at the core of the discipline.
