Landscape: Politics and Perspectives
Berg, 1993 - Nature - 351 pages
The term 'landscape' was coined in an emergent capitalist world to evoke a particular set of elite experiences - a particular 'way of seeing'. But other people also have landscapes. The authors of this book are Geographers, Anthropologists and Archaeologists, and they explore landscape as something subjective, something experienced, something that alters through time and space, that is created by, and creative of, historical conditions and geographical emplacement. The articles range in time from 6000 BC to the present, and in space from Alaska and Melanesia to Belfast and Berlin. They show how the cultural and political analysis of landscape cuts across many disciplinary boundaries and how perceptions of the land and its history are created, negotiated and contested.
