Description:

Many academic disciplines have taken a spatial turn in recent years, and environmental crisis is on everybody’s lips, but all too often students, scholars, and practitioners do not know where to go to read about the issues that spark their imaginations. People, Place and Spaceprovides a broad, theoretically informed introduction and brings together key texts from a variety of disciplines that focus on environment, space, and place as they relate to both the mundane and the spectacular in the everyday lives of people. As interdisciplinary studies proliferate dramatically and the boundaries between such things as area studies, cultural studies, urban studies, and environmental studies become more porous, this compendium of readings on space and place is relevant to an increasing number of students in a wide variety of fields. This reader provides the integrated analytical tools and imaginative theories that will prod an individual from any discipline to think harder and reach farther on the many issues raised by the human environment.
