Thoroughly revised and updated, this text introduces students of
human geography and allied disciplines to the fundamental concept
of place, combining discussion about everyday uses of the term with
the complex theoretical debates that have grown up around it.



? A thoroughly revised and updated edition of this
highly successful short introduction to place

? Features a new chapter on the use of place in
non-geographical arenas, such as in ecological theory, art theory
and practice, philosophy, and social theory

? Combines discussion about everyday uses of the term
?place? with the more complex theoretical debates that
have grown up around it

? Uses familiar stories drawn from the news, popular
culture, and everyday life as a way to explain abstract ideas and
debates

? Traces the development of the concept from the 1950s
through its subsequent appropriation by cultural geographers, and
the linking of place to politics
