Puts the case for reinstating regional geography as a contemporary and relevant methodology, against a background of increased interest in reviving and restructuring this field of study. The first section assesses traditional regional geography and its relevance to the study of contemporary situations; the second outlines the alternative approaches of world-systems analysis, diffusion and structuration theory; and the conclusion considers the potential of regional geography to interpret the structures within which society operates. The papers have been selected and revised from a seminar held in Utrecht in 1987, and all of them are abstracted separately. -after Editors
