This book provides a critical evaluation of the transformation of cultural geography which has occurred over the past two decades. Cultural Geography explains cultural change in different geographical settings, from the politics of everyday life to the production and consumption of landscapes, to the politics of sexuality, gender, race, and nationality. * Analyses recent transformations in cultural geographic theory, whilst salvaging the most valuable aspects of older traditions. * Encourages debate over the ideology of culture, the production of value and the role of cultural struggle in reproducing social life. * Illustrates cultural geographic theory using examples of contemporary "culture wars". * Adopts an approach which is both accessible and meaningful to the advanced student, by relating difficult concepts to contemporary issues.
