Cultural Geography: Environments, Landscapes, Identities, Inequalities explores the relationship between people and the places they live in by analyzing cultural identities and cultural landscapes on both local and global scales. The new edition of Cultural Geography introduces co-author Margaret Walton-Roberts, whose familiarity with contemporary practices in the discipline ensures a good balance between traditional and modern approaches to cultural geography. Ultimately, these approaches demonstrate cultural geography's relation to other areas of geographic interest and the impact it has on them, particularly social, economic, political, environmental, and physical geography. The text has been revised and updated, with enhanced discussion of identity and power, socio-spatial relationships, hybridity and nature, feminism, and Marxism, making it more appropriate for today's student. Boxed features, questions for critical thought, and suggested further readings enhance student engagement and study.
