But how far we can control those changes, or keep them within acceptable limits, is a more difficult question.

There is no doubt that introductory textbooks do not always travel well. This is because they are often designed for a particular educational system; but more because they also reflect a specific version of what is important in the world and what constitutes human geography.

One of the attractions of such models has no doubt been their tendency to suggest that the West is the most ‘developed’ and thus most ‘progressive’ part of the world and, by implication, the best. But quite apart from the questionable assumption that all societies are seeking to imitate the West, this raises important issues about the meaning of ‘progress’ and ‘development’, two terms that certainly carry very positive connotations in the West.
