Media reviews
Head boldly explores recursive terrain by bringing together environmental-change science with cultural constructions of nature. Head's volume made clear to me just how much we need innovative textbooks, both to rattle our complacency and to attract the best students -- Karl W. Butzer, Department of Geography, Universit This book represents a fundamental contribution to studies of cultural perception of landscapes and their change over time. It will be of value to the increasing number of researchers basing their fieldwork with Indigenous Australians on an understanding of the significance of a cultural landscapes approach to their investigations. -- Australian Aboriginal Studies 20030527 Relatively few texts appeal to geographers of all persuasions, but here's a book that has the potential to be enjoyed by both physical and human geographers, as well as by the book's natural audience of environmental specialists. -- Transactions of the IBG, Vol 27:2 20020901 A wide-ranging and well-written text on an interesting and important interdisciplinary topic. -- International Journal of Environmental Studies 20020901 This book is splendid in many ways. It is lively, it covers many different types of terrain and it is exploratory in the feeling that the author is conveying a reconnaissance of ideas and not treading a broad highway. -- The Geographical Journal 20030324
