Landscape is a stimulating introduction to and contemporary understanding of one of the most important concepts within human geography. A series of different influential readings of landscape are debated and explored, and, for the first time, distinctive traditions of landscape writing are brought together and examined as a whole, in a forward-looking critical review of work by cultural geographers and others within the last twenty to thirty years. This book clearly and concisely explores `landscape' theories and writings, allowing students of geography, environmental studies and cultural studies to fully comprehend this vast and complex topic.
'This book synthesises earlier ideas and presents current thinking in an accessible form ... an excellent contribution to the theoretical study of landscape' - Brian Short, University of Sussex, UK
'Very well written, very accessible, and easy to read quickly. A pleasure, in fact.' - Richard H. Schein, University of Kentucky, USA
'I found Wylie's Landscape refreshingly clear and jargon-free with examples one could relate to. In sum, the book is extremely well written and very accessible and would make a valuable addition to any personal or institutional library.' Nina J Morris, University of Edinburgh
