About this title:

Synopsis: The beauty of Jamaican waterfalls, some world famous and others little known, inspired writers and painters for centuries and is a major drawing card in the country's tourism industry. Other, more practical, uses to which waterfalls are put are also desribed in this survey of the waterfalls of Jamaica.
Brian Hudson draws on literature from the mid eighteenth century to date, topographical writings, prints, photographs, films, guide books, tourist brochures and official reports, and examines the aesthetics of Jamaican waterfalls and the problems of competing uses and excessive exploitation in the context of the wider issues of conservation and sustainable development.
Waterfalls of Jamaica will be of interest to academic geographers, tourism planners and environmentalists, as well as to Jamaican residents and visitors to the island, whose enjoyment of the landscape will be enhanced by their reading of this volume. A special section provides hints for photographing various waterfalls to best advantage, which should prove valuable to amateur and professional photographers alike.

About the Author: Brian J. Hudson is an Associate of the School of Design and Built Environment, Queensland University of Technology.

Book Description University of the West Indies Press, Jamaica, 2002. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Millions of people worldwide share a great fascination with waterfalls. In this first and only book about Jamaican waterfalls, Dr Brian J. Hudson looks at the unique appeal of waterfalls, their portrayal in words and image, their roles in recreation and tourism, and their use as sources of mechanical and electrical energy. Although this book refers to all well known falls of the island and to many of those known only to a few, it is not a descriptive guide. Rather, it examines the aesthetics of Jamaican waterfalls and the problems of competing uses and excessive exploitation in the context of the wider issues of environmental conservation and sustainable development. In addition to thirty years of observation in the field, Dr Hudson draws on extensive secondary research, including literature from the mid-eighteenth century to date, topographical writings, prints, photographs, films, guidebooks, tourist brochures, and official reports. In both content and style, this book appeals to a wide readership of geographers, tourism planners, environmentalists, Jamaican residents and visitors, and anyone with a special interest in Jamaica.
