Reviews

"Scenescapes proposes new tools for measuring social facts and new ways to analyze this data. The result is an excellent book--masterfully executed, clearly written, and peppered with interesting and convincing anecdotes and examples."-- "Howard S. Becker, author of Becoming a Marihuana User"
"Combining wide-ranging erudition, soaring theoretical ambition, and rigorous empirical investigation, Scenescapes is a dazzling explication of a powerful but elusive concept: the aesthetic meaning of place. Thoroughly engaging throughout, it shows that local character is far from a tertiary concern even in this age of globalization, with surprising consequences not only for cultural geography but also for economic and political sociology. This is a remarkable book!"-- "Richard Douglas Lloyd, Vanderbilt University"
"We all know that places have different 'feels, ' but until now quantitative analysis has not been able to represent these differences very well, and has focused on larger units like cities or counties rather than neighborhoods. By using data from the Census to the Yellow Pages, Silver and Clark have been able to characterize individual neighborhoods down to the ZIP code level. This is a real breakthrough. Scenescapes deserves wide attention."-- "David Weakliem, University of Connecticut"
