Description

Drawing upon thirty years work which took him to Madagascar, New Hebrides, Australia and New Caledonia, Joel Bonnemaison's work presents an original and refreshing alternative to the more traditional Anglo-American approach to cultural geography. Bonnemaison provides a true kind of anthro-geography as he explores questions around the geography of culture and the anthropology of space. With an introduction by John Agnew, Department Chair, Dept. of Geography, UCLA. 'Bonnemaison's perspective is infinitely more interesting than most Anglo-American cultural geography.' - Professor Mike Hefferman, University of Nottingham 'A very stimulating introduction to cultural geography.' - Professor Paul Claval 'The translation into English of Joel Bonnemaison's "La Geographie Culturelle" is a major event. In this gem of a book, Bonnemaison makes a powerful case for an entirely new form of cultural geography that helps us make sense of both Western and non-Western societies.' - Mike Heffernan, Nottingham University.
