Landscape (Key Ideas in Geography)
By: John Wylie (author)Paperback
Landscape is a stimulating introduction to and contemporary understanding of one of the most important concepts within human geography. A series of different influential readings of landscape are debated and explored, and, for the first time, distinctive traditions of landscape writing are brought together and examined as a whole, in a forward-looking critical review of work by cultural geographers and others within the last twenty to thirty years. This book clearly and concisely explores 'landscape' theories and writings, allowing students of geography, environmental studies and cultural studies to fully comprehend this vast and complex topic. To aid the student, vignettes are used to highlight key writers, papers and texts. Annotated further reading and student exercises are also included. For researchers and lecturers, Landscape presents a forward-looking synthesis of hitherto disparate fields of inquiry, one which offers a platform for future research and writing.
DR JOHN WYLIE is Senior Lecturer in Cultural Geography in the School of Geography, Archaeology and Earth Resources at the University of Exeter. His research and teaching focuses upon landscape, the body and creative critical practice in cultural geography
