Challenging the premise that geography is destiny, this book joins a growing body of literature studying the links between geography and development. Focusing on Latin America, the book argues that based on a better understanding of geography, public policy can help control or channel its influence toward the goals of economic and social development. The principal purpose of this book is to contribute to the renaissance in research on geography as a factor that influences, but does not necessarily determine, development.
