Abstract:

"Five years in the making, Geographies of New Orleans unveils fresh new perspectives on a famous old city, from its fragile deltaic terrain, to its striking built environment, to its diverse ethnic makeup, to its devastation by Hurricane Katrina. Geographer Richard Campanella brings computer cartography, aerial imagery, spatial analysis, and fieldwork to the study of urban and regional history. In chapters with intriguing titles such as "America?s Oldest Multicultural Society?," "What the Yellow Pages Reveals About New Orleans," "Creole New Orleans: The Geography of a Controversial Ethnicity," "Paradoxical Yet Typical: The Geography of the African-American Community," and "Hurricane Katrina and the Geographies of Catastrophe," Campanella integrates hundreds of historical sources with custom-made maps, graphs, photos, and satellite images to explore the intricate urban fabrics of this fascinating city, up to the moment of their terrible shredding."--Publisher website (October 2006).
