This tribute to Jan Kleinpenning, specialist in the human geography of Latin America, professor at the University of Nijmegen from 1965 to 1997, contains contributions from (former) colleagues, students and friends in which they discuss trends in the human geography of developing regions and in related disciplines, referring, wherever possible, to Jan Kleinpenning's work. The 43 contributions are arranged in 7 parts: the environment; agriculture and manufacturing industry; population and urbanization; State, welfare and civil society; culture and development theory; Europe; Jan Kleinpenning and the geography of developing countries. Six of the contributions have an Africa focus: Interpreting the factors affecting hunger and poverty in intertropical Africa (Jan Piket) - Land reform in Africa: lessons from Kenya (Marcel Rutten) - Stockbreeding in western Africa (Leo de Haan) - Technology and agrarian change: a case study of western Kenya (Paul Hebinck) - No more regions of explosive population growth (Henk Reitsma) - Bedouin and townspeople: Ibn Khaldûn's view of the development of Arabic (Kees Versteegh)
