Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415102979, Hardcover)In the second half of the 20th century, the theme of culture has dominated the human sciences. This work reviews concepts of culture in ways that should be accessible to those new to the field and also stimulating to experts. It examines this "turn to culture" in a number of academic fields, clarifying the socio-intellectual context within which these themes have been generated. The main strengths of the paradigm shift are documented, but the text also shows why these developments have sometimes ended in impasse. Key themes in contemporary culture - as well as questions of citizenship and the meaning of place - are also explored.
