The finishing touch of this assortment took many months, and, for various cause, required the help and/or indulgence of a few contributors. at the start, i need to thank Tim Hudson for his worthy enter and aid on the outset of the venture Likewise, i need to thank Jesse O. McKee for supplying a hospitable surroundings in the course of my association with the college of Southern Mississippi. At Louisiana kingdom collage i'm thankful to Sam Hilliard and Carville Earle for his or her valuable realizing. The booklet grew to become a part of the GeoJoumal Library because of Wolf Tietze's self belief within the subject, and due to Henri G. van Dorssen's (and Kluwer educational Publishers') reliable nab.lre - regardless of a variety of 'problems'. Curtis C. Roseman, and the rest of the Geography division on the college of Southern California (where I accomplished many final minute information for the volume), are to be thanked for the cordial and hot environ ment I obtained whereas a customer in l. a.. ultimately, no multi-authored assortment reaches crowning glory with no the aid of many sufferer individuals. this actual publication suffered many set-backs alongside the way in which, so i'm really thankful to the authors herein.

It does in fact make substantive value assumptions about American democracy and about democratic political process. It is elitist and exclusionary. It lacks any semblance of democratic legitimacy. And, it can actually encourage political manipulation through outright deception or more often through what Goodin calls 'manipulation of the obvious,' through linguistic debasement, problem delineation, fact-fiddling, and conceptrigging (Goodin 1980, p. 196). In sum, thin conceptualization deprives applied geographers, as it does policy analysts and planners, of any independent critical perspective from which to understand their own enterprise and, by extension, to understand themselves.
When the economic history of Western society over the last 150 years is looked at from the perspective of occupation and employment, the following picture emerges: A century and a half ago, the vast mass of the work force in all countries was employed in agriculture, forestry, mining, and fishing - primary industries. Only during the last 50 years has the proportion of the work force so engaged in the major industrialized countries dropped sharply, from well over 1:2 to something less than 1: 10.
