Abstract:

The Geography of Nostalgia explores nostalgia as a child of modernity but also as a force that exceeds and challenges modernity. The book begins at a global level, addressing the place of nostalgia within both global capitalism and anticapitalism. It turns to the contested role of nostalgia in debates about environmentalism and social constructionism. The book then turns to more particular and local landscapes which explore the yearnings of migrants for distant homelands, and the old cities and ancient forests that are threatened by modernity but which modern people see as sites of authenticity and escape.
