Description - Anthropology of Space and Place by Setha M. Low

Over the last two decades anthropologists have drawn on insights from ethnographic inquiry to challenge accepted definitions and ideas of space and place. Their efforts have led to an understanding that both the conceptual and material dimensions of space as well as of built forms and landscape characteristics are central to the production (and reproduction) of social life. The Anthropology of Space and Place: Locating Culture is an unprecedented collection of key articles presented explicitly for students and researchers in anthropology, environmental psychology, sociology, architecture, geography, and urban planning. The volume includes an introduction that synthesizes existing literature, highlights core issues, and maps potential directions for future research.
