Perhaps some of the most special and studied geographers of the 20th century, Carl O. Sauer (1889--1975) had impression that extends well past the confines of anyone self-discipline. With a spotlight on ancient and cultural geography, Sauer's essays have garnered compliment from poets, normal historians, and social scientists alike who proceed to discover Sauer's paintings. In Carl Sauer on tradition and panorama, editors William M. Denevan and Kent Mathewson have compiled thirty-seven of Sauer's unique works, together with infrequent early writings, articles in now principally inaccessible courses, and transcriptions of key oral displays that stay little known.
A scholar of the relationships among land and lifestyles, humans and areas, Sauer helped identify panorama reports in cultural geography and cleared the path for paradigmatic shifts within the scholarly evaluate of local American background. by means of strongly advocating a land ethic, "a dependable stewardship of the maintaining earth," for his personal and for destiny generations, Carl Sauer provided an esthetic motive and a ancient standpoint to the environmental movement.
The quantity opens with prolonged essays on Sauer's critics and his works. Essays by means of well known geographers and different gurus on Sauer introduce each one component to the booklet, including a modern point to the presentation and interpretation of Sauer's existence and scholarship in components reminiscent of soil conservation, guy in nature, and cultivated crops. a whole bibliography of his courses and an intensive compilation of commentaries on his existence and paintings make this an fundamental reference.
Carl Sauer on tradition and panorama sheds new mild on Sauer's contributions to the historical past of geographic suggestion, sustainable land use, and the significance of organic and cultural variety -- all of which stay key concerns today.
