Consuming Places by John Urry (The International Library of Sociology; Routledge, 1995) is a collection of Urry’s most significant essays on the sociology of place.
[Urry] interrogates the nature of time and space, the different ways in which places are economically and culturally transformed, the form taken by the visual consumption of place, and the ways in which travel transforms nature and the environment. Wide-ranging yet coherent, this much needed book is a major contribution to the sociology of place.
