About the Author

Paul C. Adams is Associate Professor and Director of Urban Studies, in the Department of Geography and the Environment, University of Texas at Austin. His books include Textures of Place: Exploring Humanist Geographies (co-edited with Steven Hoelscher and Karen E. Till) (2001), The Boundless Self: Communication in Physical and Virtual Spaces (2005), and Atlantic Reverberations: French Representations of an American Presidential Election (Ashgate, 2007).


"In presenting a 'humbler concept, a process rather than an object' (p. 9) Adams' book not only seems certain to be widely read beyond an undergraduate audience, but may be more likely to develop genuinely shared connections across such a broad spectrum of scholarship." ( Tijdschrift voor Economische en Sociale Geografie , 1 January 2013)
