Landscapes of Leisure

Space, Place and Identities

S. Gammon (Redaktør) ; S. Elkington (Redaktør)

«<p>"This book on space, place, and landscape covers considerable new ground in the under-studied area of space and leisure. Here space and place are linked in the over-arching framework of landscape, where the first two are sometimes disconnected and incompatible and other times well-linked in notable harmony. Today's spatial landscape is protean, a product of the contemporary world of rapid change occurring over vast geographic areas. These chapters look into the uncertainties, complexities, and disturbances of the modern landscape to produce a major advance in non-essentialist thinking about space-related leisure."</p> <p>- Professor Robert Stebbins, University of Calgary, Canada</p>»
