James and Nancy Duncan look at how the aesthetics of physical landscapes are fully enmeshed in producing the American class system. Focusing on an archetypal upper class American suburb-Bedford in Westchester County, NY-they show how the physical presentation of a place carries with it a range of markers of inclusion and exclusion.

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.

This volume explores the broad range of ideas about nature reflected in 20th- century concepts of natural gardens, suggesting the various ways in which "nature" is an ideologically defined concept. 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.

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.
