Ideology and landscape in historical perspective : essays on the meanings of some places in the past by Alan R. H Baker( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Landscapes of material are also landscapes of meaning: praxis is itself symbolic, and all landscapes are symbolic in practice. Ideology and landscape in historical perspective draws together fifteen historical geographers to examine landscapes as messages to be decoded, as signs to be deciphered. The range of examples is wide in terms of period, from the medieval to the modern, and of place, embracing the USA, Canada, Palestine, Israel, South Africa, India, Singapore, France and Germany. Each essay addresses a specific problem, but collectively they are principally concerned with the ideologies of religion and of politics, of church and state, and their historical impress upon landscapes. The book is introduced by an essay which explores the dialectical understanding of landscapes, and landscapes as expressions of the connection of an ideology to a quest for order, to an assertion of authority and to a prospect of totalization. The issues raised by landscapes and their meanings - issues of individual and collective action, of objective and subjective knowing, of materialist and idealist explanation - are fundamental not only to historical geography but to any humanistic study, and render the geographical study of landscapes of interest to scholars in many disciplines

Explorations in historical geography : interpretative essays by Alan R. H Baker( Book )

18 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The debate about the purpose and practice of historical geography has often focused upon the progress to be made in the discipline through an adaptation to new problems, new methodologies, new techniques and new sources. Originally published in 1984, this volume of interpretative essays extends that debate by exploring in tentative fashion some basic methodological and substantive issues from essentially interdisciplinary standpoints. In any exploration, risks have to be accepted as an integral part of this enterprise. All of

Geographies of England : the North-South divide, material and imagined by Alan R. H Baker( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To what extent has a North-South divide been a structural feature of England's geography during the last millennium and to what extent has it been especially associated with, and recognized during, particular periods in the past? These are the central questions addressed in this pioneering exploration of the history of a fundamentally geographical concept. Six essays treating different historical periods in time are integrated by their common concern with two geographical questions: first, to what extent is it possible for us to detect a material or tangible North-South divide in England in those periods in terms of regional differences in, for example, population, economy, society and culture; and, secondly, how important was the idea of such a divide to the geographical imaginations of contemporaries? A concluding essay by the editors reviews the social construction of England's geography and history and the significance of the North-South divide as a cultural metaphor
Fraternity among the French peasantry : sociability and voluntary associations in the Loire valley, 1815-1914 by Alan R. H Baker( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The individualism of the French peasantry during the nineteenth century has frequently been asserted as one of its most striking characteristics. In this new study, based upon meticulous archival research, Alan Baker demonstrates that such a portrayal distorts the extent to which peasants both continued with traditional, and developed new, forms of collective action
Amateur musical societies and sports clubs in provincial France, 1848-1914 : Harmony and Hostility by Alan R. H Baker( )

13 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores leisure-related voluntary associations in France during the nineteenth century as practical expressions of the Revolutionary concept of fraternité. Using a mass of unpublished sources in provincial and national archives, it analyses the history, geography and cultural significance of amateur musical societies and sports clubs in eleven départements of France between 1848 and 1914. It demonstrates that, although these voluntary associations drew upon and extended the traditional concept of cooperation and community, and the Revolutionary concept of fraternity, they also incorporated the fundamental characteristics of competition and conflict. Although intended to produce social harmony, in practice they reflected the ideological hostilities and cultural tensions that permeated French society in the nineteenth century."--Page [4] of cover
