Modern Historical Geographies
Modern Historical Geographies is the first comprehensive undergraduate text to explore the historical geographies of modernity that have shaped and connected places and landscapes on a global scale. The approaches, themes and theories of historical geography have changed significantly over the last twenty years, and the book introduces students to the major developments in the subject. Ten contributions, from leading historical geographers, are organised thematically around the historical geographies of key processes and issues which have shaped the modern world in the post-medieval period, including patterns of globalisation, nationalism and the nation-state, imperialism, urbanisation and environmental change. Bringing together questions of material change, culture and power, this book addresses the meanings, implications and material geographies of 'modernity'.
Modern Historical Geographies is a key text for undergraduate courses in historical geography, cultural geography, human geography and cultural and heritage studies.
