The so-called "cultural turn" in contemporary geography has brought new ways of thinking about geography and culture and taken cultural geography into exciting new terrain to produce new maps of space and place. "Cultural Geography" is the first book to introduce culture from a geographical perspective. It tracks the ideas, practices and objects that together form cultures--and how these cultures form identities for individuals and populations. Crang examines a range of scales as he considers the role of states, empires and nations, firms and corporations, shops and goods, books and films, in creating identities. "Cultural Geography" looks at the way different processes come together in particular places and how those places develop meanings for people, whether at a global scale or the intimate scale of everyday life. This text features clear writing, boxed case studies, chapter summaries, further reading guides and a glossary of key terms.
