Economic Geography introduces the student to the manifold influences that are likely to have a bearing on the location of economic activity and the evolution of district economic regions in the different parts of the world. Geographers have come to realise that the uniqueness and the personality of an economic region owe much to factors other than the merely physical ones: political, social and historical factors. governmental and international controls, peoples attitudes, skills and goals and the response of mankind to these forces at a given time, in a particular place, to name but a few. This book emphasises the forces behind the dynamism of an economic region and seeks the causes for the regional variations in economic development. It a few regional aspects are interspersed in the text, they are only examples to emphasise the nature of the impact of a particular influencing factor on the location of economic activity. The book leaves the student to seek out for himself the relevant criteria which best explain the economic patterns and problems in specific areas and gives him the tools necessary for an intelligent interpretation of areal variations in economy.
