Reviews

"Throughout this text, Horton and Kraftl engage with a wide spectrum of social and cultural
theories. They discuss the multiple meanings and uses of the word "culture," and they also remind
us that knowledge is always situated, and writing is positional and embodied. Last but not least, they
provide a richly annotated bibliography of key readings in the field of cultural geographies and
neighboring disciplines." - Heike Henderson, Boise State University
