A.H. Clark's Framing of Geographical Change

Mike Roche


This paper considers the importance of Andrew Clark’s time in New Zealand to the ways in which he wrote about geographical change.  It suggests that some of the features of Clark’s writings, for instance his reticence about generalisation emerged very early in his career.  Likewise, that in a context where the landscape had been rapidly and to a great degree transformed, ‘geographical change’ assumed central place in Clark’s thinking.  Other considerations and approaches became more important to Clark by the mid-1950s but his New Zealand sojourn cannot be overlooked in any assessment of his  over all career.
