Marcin Wojciech Solarz is Professor in the Faculty of Geography and Regional Studies at the University of Warsaw, Poland.
Excerpt from book review in Hungarian Geographical Bulletin, Vol. 69 No.1, 2020 This book...contextualises and modulates the problem of what humanity thinks of development, progression, and well-being...The Brandt Line has a place in political and economic history rather than contemporary 21st-century atlases. Solarz's work explores the geographic aspects of development in great detail, focusing on the discourse around the Brandt Line. By contributing to the discussion, he resolves the opposition of the global South and North with multiple approaches and offers new alternatives for presenting development on a global scale. -- Geza Barta, Doctorate School of Earth Sciences, Eoetvoes Lorand, University (ELTE), Budapest, Hungary
