Product Description


"Every so often a book is written that has the potential to shift the direction of a subfield. This is just such a book.... [It] is not so much about landscape as it is about the idea of landscape, its portrayal in art, and its origin and development in the West since the Renaissance.... [Cosgrove] sees the idea of landscape not only as 'a way of seeing' but as a profoundly ideological concept that reveals the way classes portray themselves and their world through an imagined relationship with nature."--James S. Duncan, "Annals of the Association of American Geographers"

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book for the intellectual. Not necessarily a leisure read, but if you are interested in any of the topics covered, this is a required text.
