About the Author

Jon Anderson is a Senior Lecturer in Human Geography in the School of Planning and Geography at Cardiff University, UK. His research interests focus on the relations between identity, culture, and place, in particular the actions, practices and politics that such relations produce.


"Jon Anderson has produced one of the best guides to navigating the thrilling, wayward and sometimes contradictory world of cultural geography. The second edition is thoroughly updated and adds new material on emerging debates within the discipline. Written in a highly accessible style this volume is the essential companion for students of cultural geography."

Dr Phil Jones, Senior Lecturer in Cultural Geography, University of Birmingham, UK

Cultural geography is one of the most lively and ever-changing of academic fields, adapting itself to a dynamic world. By centering the notion of `place' in his account of this field Anderson is able to provide a coherent but flexible core to this exciting approach to what it is to be human in the twenty-first century world. This book is up-to-date, engaging and authoritative, studded with jewel-like illustrations of the complexities and contradictions of what it is like to inhabit this sometimes wonderful but often conflict-ridden planet. Students and teachers alike will love it!

Professor Tim Cresswell, Northeastern University, USA

Understanding Cultural Geography: Places and Traces both introduces students to the sub-discipline in general and argues for its distinctive focus on place. This second edition is enhanced by a much clearer thematic structure, as well as two new chapters on mobility and language. The vibrancy of contemporary Cultural Geography fizzes through its pages. Read, learn, enjoy.

Professor Philip Crang, Royal Holloway University of London, UK
