Place and Placelessness



January 2008 | 174 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

First published forty years ago and still widely referenced, Edward Relph's Place and Placelessness has taken its place as a classic of the phenomenological approach to the study of place and has influenced a generation of scholars.

For this reprint Professor Relph has written a new introduction setting his original work in its contemporary context. He shows how the concepts of place have been modified and yet continue to be of vital importance in interpreting a world which travel and commerce have made very different from that of 1976. In his words: “sense of place has the potential to serve as a pragmatic foundation for addressing the profound local and global challenges, such as climate change and economic disparity, that are emerging in the present century.”
