Book Description

20 May 2010 Regions and Regionalism in History (Book 12)
How distinctive is the landscape of the North East of England? How far does its distinctive nature contribute to the region's regional identity? These are key questions addressed by this book. Covering a wide range of subjects including country house landscapes, village landscapes and "townscapes", including coverage of how the region's landscape has been perceived and represented in literature and art, and approaching the subject from a wide range of perspectives including historical, literary, archaeological, art-historical and geographical, the book provides a rich, detailed and well-illustrated overview of the landscape of the North East of England. It demonstrates that this landscape is more subtle, layered and varied than is often supposed, and that stereotypes that the region is grimly industrial and dominated by coal-mining are wrong. Overall, besides much interesting detail and many new research findings, the book vividly evokes the landscapes and the spirit of place of the North East. Dr THOMAS FAULKNER is Visiting Fellow, School of Historical Studies, University of Newcastle; Dr HELEN BERRY is Reader in Early Modern History, School of Historical Studies, University of Newcastle; Dr JEREMY GREGORY is Senior Lecturer, Dept. Religions and Theology, University of Manchester. Contributors: S. M. COUSINS, A. W. PURDUE, S. A. CAUNCE, STEVEN DESMOND, JUDITH BETNEY, VERONICA GOULTY, FIONA GREEN, ADRIAN GREEN, WINIFRED STOKES, HILARY J. GRAINGER, MARTIN ROBERTS, GILLIAN COOKSON, THOMAS FAULKNER, LINDA POLLEY, HELEN BERRY, HUGH DIXON, JAN HEWITT, LAURA NEWTON.

Product Description

Review

Contributes to broader discussions about how we read and interpret landscapes as historical 'documents'. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW The contributions provide a good mix of approaches and understandings of landscape studies, and there are a number which are of significance to wider debates about landscape development. LANDSCAPE HISTORY This book is a pleasure to read from cover to cover. It is attractively produced and well illustrated.and the quality of the content is uniformly high. It is thoroughly recommended to anyone interested in the region, its history and its landscapes, and would give many ideas for research and investigation to local historians elsewhere. THE LOCAL HISTORIAN The sheer diversity of topics and approaches encompassed by the assays is one of this volume's charms. (...) It is difficult to summarise such a rich and diverse collection of essays. NORTHERN HISTORY
