A Companion to Cultural Geography brings together original contributions from 40 distinguished international scholars to provide a critical overview of this dynamic and influential field of study. The volume starts by charting the most significant changes in cultural geography in the twentieth century before going on to introduce the principal approaches animating work in the field today. These theoretical approaches are then grounded in a series of essays on the major thematic areas to which cultural geographers have contributed ---nature, identity, landscape, colonialism, and post-colonialism.The Companion will be a valuable resource not just for geographers but also for those working in allied fields who seek a clear understanding of the contribution that geography is making to cross-disciplinary debates.
