Dean & Millar's text will be a very helpful text not only for artists but those from other disciplines as well who are exploring the complexities of place/space. The chapter "Entrance" is a fine introduction for artists and others to the idea of place, its relevant discussions and thinkers. Those well versed in the conversation of place and those interested in the variety of artistic manifestations of place/space will find the remainder of the text a delightful introduction as they explore specific artists and their works.
Chapters include:
1) Place - The First of All Things
2) Urban
3) Nature
4) Fantastic
5) Myth/History
6) Politics/Control
7) Territories
8) Itinerancy
9) Heterotopias and Non-Places

I was required to purchase this book for an art history class that I am taking, and I have to say it is one of the better textbooks I have read in my day. The chapters are filled with photos of the art pieces that are being analyzed, and they are concise and easy to read. I would definitely recommend this to anyone merely interested in art!
