"Approaches to Landscape introduces and explores the main perspectives in this increasingly popular field of study. The book ranges widely across disciplines, tracing the evolution of ideas about landscape and the contributions of, among others, landscape historians, landscape archaeologists, human geographers, psychologists, art historians and political scientists. The author pays particular attention to the divergence of approaches between those who apply technical expertise to investigating the development of human-made landscapes and those who are concerned with landscape in its subjective role." "Written in an accessible style and illustrated throughout with relevant photographs, maps and diagrams, Approaches to Landscape will be a standard text for students of landscape, geography, archaeology and local history, but will also appeal to anyone interested in the interaction between humans and the landscape."--Jacket

Political geography : a new introduction by Richard Muir( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written from a humanistic perspective, Political Geography: A New Introduction explores the effects of the economic globalisation process, showing how it challenges the survival of the sovereign nation-state and how it may be encouraging the development of new political associations at a localised as well as at a transnational level. The unexpected eruption of separatist movements among national minorities is examined, as well as the more intimate identifications associated with the politics of place. The failure of attempts to transplant the European nation-state system to parts of the colonial world is discussed in a chapter which focuses on the current plight of the 'collapsed' states of Africa. The recent revival of interest in geopolitics is described, with a review of the history of the approach and an exploration of the new 'critical geopolitics'. Special emphasis is given to the politics of the environment and the ways in which the environmental movement has been poorly served by the political structures and division of political power in the twentieth-century world. The book concludes with an overview of the 'New Political Order' and the changes engendered by the collapse of the Soviet bloc."--Jacket
