Broad and empirical in coverage, this best-selling volume explores the theory of the location of economic activity, and the application of that theory to geographic aspects of major economic activities. Using an international perspective (to emphasize global interdependence), it provides complete treatment of all major economic activities_from primitive/subsistence activity, through fishing/forestry, mineral resources, commercial and plantation agriculture, manufacturing, services, trade, high technology, and urban economic activity (including the operation of multinational corporations). It avoids a purely descriptive/inventory approach, but provides a rich empirical foundation throughout. Contents Preface. Economic Geography Today. Historical Evolution of the World System.
