Society in Time and Space: A Geographical Perspective on Change
Cambridge University Press, 1998. gada 13. aug. - 230 lappuses
Society in Time and Space is an innovative book which offers a geographical perspective on societal change, and sets out to show how understanding the geography of such change enables us to appreciate better the basic processes involved. Robert Dodgshon argues that, as a first step, we need to clarify the circumstances under which society becomes inertial and finds change difficult. Using a range of historical and contemporary examples, he shows that society's use of space is a powerful source of this inertia. Different sources of geographical inertia are explored, including society's symbolization and organizational structuring of space, together with its capitalization of landscape. Building on this mapping of inertia, Professor Dodgshon shows how society has long steered radical change around such space. Society in Time and Space will be of interest not only to geographers but also to historians and social theorists.
