From the Back Cover:

At the heart of this important study of contemporary geography lies a deceptively simple question: how should geographers respond to a world which is changing fast - perhaps faster than ever before?

The Challenge for Geography addresses this question directly, bringing together ten prominent geographers to examine both changes in the contemporary world and transformations within the discipline of geography.

Two substantial introductory chapters by Ron Johnston set the agenda for each of the book's main sections, "A Changing World" and "A Changing Discipline". Part One features Peter Dicken on the changing global economy, Susan J. Smith on social landscapes, Graham Smith on geopolitics, Ian Simmons on human societies and environmental change, Andrew Goudie on land transformation, and Martin Parry on climate change. In Part Two, Peter Taylor, Peter Jackson and Ron Abler examine the implications of these changes in the world for the discipline of geography.

This book will be welcomed by anyone concerned with the past, present and future of geography.
