My thanks are due to many people who have so freely given their assistance in the preparation of this book. I am particularly indebted to the following: the editors of the series, Professor R. O. Buchanan, the late Dr. A. W. Fox, and to Mr. G. J. Ponsonby for reading through the text and for many helpful suggestions; Mr. D. C. Young for his invaluable aid in the collection of material; Mrs. E. Wilson and Miss S. M. Chantler for drawing the maps and diagrams.

Acknowledgement is also made for permission to reproduce the following material: Mr. John Bartholomew for the use of the Regional projection in the map of Major World Air Routes; Dr. J. Parker Van Zandt and the Brookings Institution, Washington, D.C., for Figure 1; Mr. Glenn Cunningham and the Association of American Geographers for Figure 5; Dr. W. S. Barry and the University of London for Figure 10; the editor of Geography for allowing me to reproduce Figures 14 and 15 which first appeared in a paper by the author in Geography (1955). Acknowledgement is made in the text for the use of statistical data. Statistical data from official sources and the Crown copyright Meteorological data used in the construction of Figures 3 and 4 are reproduced by kind permission of the Controller of H.M. Stationery Office.

Perhaps I ought to explain that the small figures that appear in the text are intended to refer readers to the list of publications to be found at the end of each chapter, where details concerning the particular book or paper are given.
