9780044453666: Maps of Meaning: Introduction to Cultural Geography (Contours)

This survey is the first of a series which attempts to illustrate the potential for a revitalized cultural geography. The author draws on theoretical developments in cultural studies and social theory and suggests new ways of approaching that concept geographically. He argues that geography is not merely incidental to cultural variation, relevant only to the explanation of diversity, but that it is fundamental to the very constitution of culture. The book employs a more expansive definition of culture than that commonly adopted in cultural geography. It looks at the cultures of socially marginal groups as well as at the dominant national culture of the elite.
