The only anthology of its kind, this collection brings together classic and recent essays by thirteen leading geographers exploring American popular culture. The essays examine music, food, sports, politics, architecture, clothing, and religion within the context of five themes of cultural geography: region, diffusions, ecology, integration, and landscape. A list of suggested readings follows each section. Fast Food, Stock Cars, and Rock-n-Roll is an excellent text for introductory courses, appealing to students through its discussion of such topics as 'grunge' rock, fast food, and blue jeans.
