Comments by the Author:

The focus of this work reflects a course I taught at the University of Chicago in the 1950s on "economic geography," in which I broke the usual rules by emphasizing ecological and technological and even sociological factors rather than the economic order as such.

I must have left the students very confused!

The closing paragraph stated the key notion: human work transforming "nature".
