A Geography of Heritage: Power, Culture and Economy

A Geography of Heritage: Power, Culture and Economy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The concept of heritage relates to the ways in which contemporary society uses the past as a social, political or economic resource. However, heritage is open to interpretation and its value may be perceived from differing perspectives - often reflecting divisions in society. Moreover, the schism between the cultural and economic uses of heritage also gives rise to potential conflicts of interest. Examining these issues in depth, this book is the first sustained attempt to integrate the study of heritage into contemporary human geography. It is structured around three themes: the diversity of use and consumption of heritage as a multi-sold cultural and economic resource; the conflicts and tensions arising from this multiplicity of uses, producers and consumers; and the relationship between heritage and identity at a variety of scales.

Synopsis:

The exploitation of natural landscapes and historical artefacts as tourism products has given rise to debate. This work provides a synthesis of research on the nature, production, consumption and uses of heritage, discussing the plurality of approaches to the subject, from mainstream to radical.

Synopsis:

This new textbook explores the various components of heritage--how it may be defined, to whom it belongs, and its diverse cultural and economic roles and uses. This is the first overview to place heritage in a georaphical perspective. Studying heritage from global to local scales, it draws upon examples and case studies from around the world.
