This ambitious volume reviews the best recent work in historical geography and sets this literature in a novel interpretative framework shaped in part by the continental European and Irish intellectual contexts within which the four authors were trained.
A lively and imaginative compendium that confirms the importance of an historically-informed human geography.
The editors bring together strengths from the study of geography and history in Europe, Canada and the US and respectively are experts in colonialism, human geography, social theory and aspects of heritage and memory. This situates them excellently to write an edited volume on concepts of historical geography.
...this volume aims to fill the gap created by dictionary entries that are too terse to explain concepts that geographers use to think about the world, broad textbook overviews that rarely deal with conceptual issues, and narrowly-framed research monographs in which discussions of concepts are both advanced and inaccessible.
This scholarly, detailed overview is a commendable work. In the introduction, the authors note that “an overarching methodological concern… is to ask geographic questions of the historical evidence that seeks to situate meaning in context” (p.2). Any student or professional within historical geography would agree that this work similarly situates meaning in context for the wide-ranging field of historical geography.
landscape architecture crosses arts & sciences, research in geography is a very useful contextual area and students are recommended to explore this text as a supplementary volume.
