Overview

The 1970s witnessed widespread recognition of the world as a single, interconnecting whole. The 1980s have shown that this whole is not operating as a self-sustaining system. In short we appear to live in a world in crisis - manifesting itself in hunger, poverty, debt, conflict, statelessness and war, as well as in the accelerating degradation of the natural environment.

The geographical perspectives of A World in Crisis? - in this completely revised and updated edition - show the interlinking nature of global, regional and local problems and, further, that these are not uniquely economic, ecological, political or social, but all these and more.
