Place. An Introduction

Thoroughly revised and updated, this text introduces students of human geography and allied disciplines to the fundamental concept of place, combining discussion about everyday uses of the term with the complex theoretical debates that have grown up around it.• A thoroughly revised and updated edition of this highly successful short introduction to place • Features a new chapter on the use of place in non-geographical arenas, such as in ecological theory, art theory and practice, philosophy, and social theory • Combines discussion about everyday uses of the term ‘place’ with the more complex theoretical debates that have grown up around it • Uses familiar stories drawn from the news, popular culture, and everyday life as a way to explain abstract ideas and debates • Traces the development of the concept from the 1950s through its subsequent appropriation by cultural geographers, and the linking of place to politics

Tim Cresswell

Tim Cresswell is a human geographer at the Department of Geography, Royal Holloway, University of London. He is the author of four books on the role of space and mobility in cultural life.


After attending Woolverstone Hall School he received his B.A. from University College London before undertaking his postgraduate education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he was awarded his Ph.D. in 1992, supervised by the renowned humanistic geoographer Yi-Fu Tuan. He returned to the UK, teaching at the University of Wales, Lampeter until 1999, and the University of Wales, Aberystwyth until 2006.Fact|date=May 2007


His research interests are in social and cultural geography, specifically geographies of mobility, such as walking, ballroom dance, and international airports, and their role in shaping cultural outlooks.

Cresswell's most cited work is 'In Place/Out of Place' (1996).Who|date=July 2007 Here, he effectively discusses notions of place and practices of resistance that may shape them, illustrating his arguments with case studies of graffiti in New York City and the protests at Greenham Common in the 1980s, to name but two examples. His book "The Tramp in America" (2001) describes the intervention of the tramp as a social type in the United States between 1869 and 1939. " (2004) provides a succinct introduction to the themes that he has researched. His most recent book is 'On the Move: Mobility in the Modern Western World' (2006) which considers mobility in sites such as the workplace, the dancefloor and the international airport.

Away from these core themes of place, mobility and resistance, Cresswell has edited an Environment and Planning special publication on the influence in human geography of Pierre Bourdieu (2002) and co-edited, with Deborah Dixon, a book on the geographies of film entitled "Engaging Film" (2002).
