From the Back Cover:

Landscapes

is a timely and well-written analysis of the meaning of
cultural landscapes. The book delves into the layers of meaning that
are invested in ordinary landscapes as well as landscapes of spectacle
and power.

The authors explore the impact of popular culture on
landscapes, such as the place-creating power of films as well as the
evolving gastronomic landscapes created by cultural fusion. Landscapes,
from the multicultural city to the anorexic body, are seen as contested
spaces of power and resistance and are visible manifestations of
ethnicity, class, gender and sexuality.

Landscapes

is a powerful and vivid application of the new cultural
geography to case studies not previously visited within cultural
geography texts.

 

  • Landscapes is a cultural geography that places value on two foundational aspects of geography: culture and landscape.
  • Landscapes is written in a narrative that is engaging for students of geography, non-geographers, and academic geographers alike.
  • Landscapes integrates the foundational emphases of traditional geography with the progressive politics and interests of the ¿cultural turn¿.
  • Landscapes throws a critical eye upon both exotic and everyday landscapes.
  • Landscapes moves beyond the Anglo-American emphasis of much of human geography.
  • In the tradition of the first geographers Landscapes is an exploration ¿ a journey ¿ engaging cultures and landscapes as interesting as those encountered by the first Muslim and Greek geographers.
