Geographical Identities of Ethnic America: Race, Space and Place


1 - 2 weeks availability


The complex relationships between human identity and place have been studied by scholars from many disciplines. In Geographical Identities of Ethnic America, eighteen distinguished geographers examine the ways in which place fashions, recreates, and contextualizes human identity in North America. Seldom has the richness of the continent's ethnic diversity been examined with such insight or sensitivity, nor have the multifarious and constantly evolving connections between places and their human occupants been studied so successfully. For scholars and students seeking fresh insights into the social, cultural, and economic aspects of North America's diverse immigrant and indigenous heritages, Geographical Identities of Ethnic America is essential reading.
