The readability, broad scope and coverage of both classic and contemporary pieces from the US and UK makes The Cultural Geography Reader relevant and accessible for a broad audience of undergraduate and graduate students. Bridging the different national traditions in the USA and UK, as well as introducing the span of classic and new cultural geography, it is divided into nine sections: approaching culture, cultural geography a trans-Atlantic journey, landscape, nature, place, mobility, home homeland - rootedness, difference and exclusion, and the business of culture. Each section begins with an introduction that discusses the key concept, its history and relation to cultural geography and connections to other disciplines and practices. Individual sections contain abridged book chapters and journal articles, each with their own focused introductions. The Cultural Geography Reader provides the instructor and student with a versatile yet enduring benchmark text.
