Eike W. Schamp
Franz Steiner Verlag, 2004 - History - 72 pages
The Geographische Zeitschrift is an important forum for the ongoing theoretical and methodological debates in human geography. On the occasion of the IGU Congress 2004 in Glasgow, the editors have assembled a selection of articles which have appeared in the Geographische Zeitschrift in recent years. To make them available to a wider public they are now translated into English. In the selection of the contributions for this volume, the guiding principle was of variety as far as theoretical grounding, the objects of research and branches of human geography were concerned. Thus, it reflects the self-perception of the Geographische Zeitschrift and allows an insight into the ideas and innovative debates in German geography. Contents Eike W. Schamp: Editorial - Helmut Klueter: Space and Compatibility - Rolf Sternberg: Entrepreneurship research. The relevance of the region and tasks facing economic geography - Marc Boeckler: Culture, geography and the diacritical practice of Oriental entrepreneurs - Martina Neuburger: Smallholder vulnerability in degraded areas. The political ecology of pioneer frontier processes in Brazil.
