Highlights the issues which are considered throughout the book, particularly the rejection of pre-1960s regional geography, and the more recent realisation that a rejection of a particular approach does not remove the need to study regions. The authors then discuss potential theoretical frameworks for such studies, including Giddens' structuration, Marx's historical materialism, realism, and Wallerstein's world-systems project, and highlight the lack of clear methodological protocols within such frameworks. -P.Hardiman
