Landscape and Race in the United States is the definitive volume on racialized landscapes in the United States. Edited by Richard Schein, each essay is grounded in a particular location but all of the essays are informed by the theoretical vision that the cultural landscapes of America are infused with race and America's racial divide. While featuring the black/white divide, the book also investigates other social landscapes including Chinatowns, Latino landscapes in the Southwest and white suburban landscapes. The essays are accessible and readable providing historical and contemporary coverage.

This book explores the role of the ideology of nature in producing urban and exurban sprawl. It examines the ironies of residential development on the metropolitan fringe, where the search for “nature” brings residents deeper into the world from which they are imagining their escape—of Federal Express, technologically mediated communications, global supply chains, and the anonymity of the global marketplace—and where many of the central features of exurbia—very low-density residential land use, monster homes, and conversion of forested or rural land for housing—contribute to the very problems that the social and environmental aesthetic of exurbia attempts to avoid. The volume shows how this contradiction—to live in the green landscape, and to protect the green landscape from urbanization—gets caught up and represented in the ideology of nature, and how this ideology, in turn, constitutes and is constituted by the landscapes being urbanized.

Bringing together timely commentaries by international, interdisciplinary scholars, Geographical Aesthetics is the first volume to make questions of geographical aesthetics a substantive concern. It reworks the historical relations between geography and aesthetics, and reconsiders how it is we might understand aesthetics. It then reaffirms the value of aesthetics in relation to key intellectual concerns within Geography and explores the geographies of the aesthetic, in particular the spatialities and imaginaries that mark its theorisations. In renewing aesthetics as a site of investigation, but also an analytic object through which we can think about the encounters, the meetings and minglings of the world, what also emerges is powerful reworking of our geographical imaginary of the aesthetic.

The 11 contributions range from an evolutionary perspective on the concept of native plants by Stephen Jay Gould to a piece on nationalism and Teutonic trends in early 20th century landscape design.
