How does knowledge of everyday environments foster deeper understanding of both past and present cultural life? Traditional studies in this field have been of rural life. Here, contributors explore aspects of the emergent field of urban cultural landscape studies--with the challenging issues of class, race, ethnicity, and subculture--to demonstrate the value of investigating the many meanings of ordinary settings. 67 illustrations.

Most of England's larger towns and cities are ringed by extensive suburbs dating from the 19th and 20th centuries, ranging from the opulent, spacious and leafy villa suburbs of the prosperous middle class to the dense gridirons of working-class and lower middle-class housing. The product of rapid urbanisation and industrialisation, these suburbs, once derided or disregarded, now face major change themselves. This book explores the development of one area of Liverpool's suburbs, examining the forces that shaped it and explaining the patterns that we see in the landscape today. The story that emerges will surprise many, and may prompt a re-evaluation of these 'ordinary' places.

This book links the new National Geography Standards with the five Fundamental Themes of Geography using a systematic approach that builds from basic knowledge to more complex, explaining the physical, cultural, and economic systems that interrelate and operate on the planet. It encourages teachers to move beyond the traditional stereotype of geography as place memorization toward conceptual thinking about how Earth systems work. Discusses the importance of geographic literacy in an era of increasingly important global interconnections. Surveys the historic role of geography education in North American schools and provides examples of how geography is taught in other countries. Coveres “geographic education revolution” in the United States. Interrelates the Five Themes of Geography and the eighteen National Geography Standards into a uniform and convenient structure for the study of any place or any topic from a geographic perspective: Location, Place, Human-Environment Interaction, Movement, and Region.

In Landscapes in India, Amita Sinha shows that landscapes can be read like languages, as arrangements of symbols that reveal cultural values. South Asian landscapes'rich with formalized symbols, from the Cosmic Tree in Buddhist landscapes to cities patterned on mandalas'offer a training ground for reading landscapes everywhere. In a readable narrative heavily illustrated with spectacular color photographs, Sinha introduces readers to sacred and secular landscapes, identifying archetypal forms that have evolved over millennia. According to Sinha, landscape symbols express all that a culture holds dear and externalize deeply felt emotions'of security, kinship, and relationship with the divine. Architects, landscape architects, and planners will rely on this beautiful book's idation of archetypal forms and how they co-evolve with nature and culture. Landscapes in India also offers fresh perspectives for travelers and readers interested in geography, anthropology, and religion.
