Reviews

Campbell manages to move easily between discussions of art, culture, history, literature and issues of representation and this freedom of reference adds weight to the new analytical and methodological terminology that he proposes. The chapters on new landscapes, visualisations of the West, alternative histories and postmodernism and urbanism in the New West, each offer fresh and convincing readings of these emerging areas of approach. Provides excellent commentary on the concept of a New West and links history, film and theatre. -- Karen Jones, University of Essex Campbell manages to move easily between discussions of art, culture, history, literature and issues of representation and this freedom of reference adds weight to the new analytical and methodological terminology that he proposes.
