Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

At last, a book that magnificently draws together a sophisticated reading of landscape with a committed understanding of the labor process involved in its construction. Mitchell's analysis appropriates the best of studies of representation while critiquing their abstraction from material production. All this while capturing the role of migrant workers in the making of the California landscape. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
