Abstract

The paper traces the rise of regional geography during the later 19th and early 20th centuries, and its precipitous decline under the criticism of the quantifiers of the 1960's. The value of area studies lies in the unifying research object which a specific area presents to geographers working from different paradigmatic viewpoints. Area studies may be resurrected by frankly accepting its idiographic base, and four guidelines are suggested for making such an approach more meaningful. (AJC).
