“The editors of this genuinely brilliant book seem to dare the reader to argue with them from the first page… I would encourage everyone interested in cultural geography, or in the cultural turn within a whole set of human geogrphies, to do likewise.”
–ANNALS OF THE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICAN GEOGRAPHERS
“A richly plural and impassioned re-presentation of cultural geography that eschews everything in the way of boundary drawing and fixity. A re-visioning of the field as “a set of engagements with the world,” it contains a vibrant atlas of ever shifting possibilities. Throbbing with commitment, and un-disciplined in the most positive sense of that term, it is exactly what a handbook ought to be.”
–Professor Allan Pred
Department of Geography, University of California at Berkeley
Ten sections, with a detailed editorial introduction, the Handbook of Cultural Geography presents a comprehensive statement of the relation between the cultural imagination and the geographical imagination. Emphasising the intellectual diversity of the discipline, the Handbook is a textured overview that presents a state-of-the-art assessment of the key questions informing cultural geography, while also looking at resonances between cultural geography and other disciplines.
