Description - Leisure and Tourism Landscapes by Cara Aitchison
The theme of this important book is the influence of leisure and tourism on the production, representation and consumption of landscape. Increasingly significant as mediators of spatial identity and meaning, leisure, tourism, culture and heritage are only now beginning to be located within the rapidly evolving discourses of poststructuralist geographies. Embracing poststructural theory to develop analyses of space, place and landscape in everyday life, this book makes a vital contribution to three discourses. The first half of the book focuses on different "ways of seeing" or representing landscape. The second half of the book examines different forms of productive consumption in leisure and tourism. Both symbolic and material spaces of leisure and tourism are examined in relation to urban and rural landscapes, heritage landscapes, gendered landscapes and landscapes of sexuality and desire. Leisure and Tourism Landscapes draws on a range of interdisciplinary subject areas, such as leisure and tourism studies, cultural studies and gender studies, to supplement analyses from geography, sociology, history and literature. It promises to redefine the way we view our surround
