Landscape, Place and Identity provides a detailed account of our relation to landscape over the last three hundred years. It demonstrates the links between landscape, identity and power and how this link has been articulated though images, texts and practises. In doing so it examines the complexity and power of landscapes, their symbolic, moral and ideological significance, and asks how national, ethnic, sexual and gender identities are related in various ways to place. Within the last ten years, geography's engagement with landscape has been rethought through perspectives from cultural and media studies, the social sciences, and the arts and humanities. Illustrated throughout Landscape, Place and Identity, offers a detailed primer on these perspectives - with examples from fine art, popular art, literature, film and the built environment. Examining 'high' and 'low' forms of representation - the analysis is a comprehensive overview of historical and contemporary themes.
