Changing Communities gives students the opportunity to explore community dynamics through a number of illuminating case studies selected from around the world. It shows how human interaction within communities operates at all levels, from family groups and villages to global organisations. It demonstrates how relations within and between communities are affected by political agreements, technological advances, increased global awareness and an ever-increasing rate of socio-economic change, and suggests that many traditional communities are under threat as a result. An integral part of the Active Geography series, this book is designed for students of geography in lower to middle secondary school.
