This text focuses on the geographic nature of the forces at work for change in the world, including political, economic, cultural and environmental aspects. It emphasizes the dynamic nature of geographic regions in a changing world and the interdependence of the regions around the world, rather than cataloging their differences. It alerts readers to expect continuing change and encourages personal involvement with the changing world. The author focuses initial attention on the developmental problems of the poorer countries instead of imposing a Western model of development that is uncritically applied to the rest of the world.
