As geography has been influenced by such themes as postcolonial studies, feminism and psychoanalysis, so students have had to engage with ideas and concepts from outside the traditional boundaries of their subject. This text provides students with an aid to understanding the complexities and subtleties of these new ideas. It presents short essays exploring the key concepts in cultural geography and are written by leading practitioners. The essays range from questions that have recently emerged to more established ideas that warrant critical examination. The book should be useful to students of cultural geography and related disciplines.
