What is the relationship between place and behavior? In this fascinating volume, Tim Cresswell addresses this question by examining "transgressive acts" that are judged as inappropriate, not only because they are committed by marginalized groups, but also because of where they occur. Cresswell looks at graffiti in New York City, the attempts by various "hippie" groups to hold a free festival at Stonehenge during the summer solstices of 1984-86, and the Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp in Berkshire, England.

Review: In Place/Out of Place: Geography, Ideology, and Transgression

User Review  - Mara Eastern - Goodreads

Starts with an informed discussion of theoretical approaches to the subject but devotes the core of the book to a detailed analysis of three case studies, which to an extent limits the general usefulness of the book. Read full review
