Description: In this provocative and challenging book, Jarvis addresses ideas and writers that have been at the cutting edge of academic interest over the past decade, from Baudrillard and Jameson to David Lynch, Toni Morrison and Paul Auster. He explores how this new geography can illuminate a range of postmodern texts as part of an exploration of the geographical imagination in contemporary American culture.

Jarvis begins with an examination of the geography of post-industrial society in the work of Daniel Bell, Marshall McLuhan and Jean Baudrillard, as challenged by critical cartographies on the left. 'Plotting postmodern landscapes' offers a critique of dominant definitions of postmodernism, and examines the representations of space in novels by Pynchon, Paul Auster, Jayne Anne Phillips and Toni Morrison. 'Reel places' looks at readings of the geographical imagination in three branches of contemporary American cinema: new science fiction, the films of David Lynch and the road movie. Jarvis's bold assertion is that there is an essential continuity between the history of spatial representation and the geographical imagination as currently expressed in postmodern culture.
