The essays in the October 1995 issue of The Geographical Review collectively deal with quintessential geographical themes that display how geographers envision and interpret the world. The themes are time-specific models, place-specific models, scale, and rate of change. An overarching idea is that new and revolutionary changes are shaping cities in the late twentieth century but that to some degree the more things change, the more they remain the same.
Key words: geographical change, place-specific models, scale, time-specific models, urban geography, United States.
