              Sweden A country which defies the laws of economic gravity. A land with high wages, strong unions, generous welfare. A dream location for business. Coming out on top for childcare, equality and quality of life. You're even less likely to die of cancer there. Perfect. Or is it? Ba...sed on more than 70 interviews with leading figures in industry and politics, Almost Perfekt is a journey through Swedish society and what sets it apart from the world today. With political chaos threatening to rip Europe in two, journalist David Crouch explores how Sweden works and what we can learn from it. How can Britain weather the Brexit storm? How will Germany deal with the rising alt-right? How should the USA be conducting itself in the era of Trump? Having lived in Sweden for five years, David Crouch has a unique perspective as an outsider looking in on one of the world's most successful yet divided countries.

              Flirting with Space: Journeys and Creativity

              The idea of 'flirting' with space is central to this book. Space is conceptualised as being in constant flux as we make our way through various contexts in our daily lives, and is considered in relation to encounters with complexities and flows of material culture. This book focu...ses on journeys, which are perceived as dynamic processes of contemporary life and its spaces, and how creativity happens in the inter-relations of space and journeys encourage creativity. Unravelled through a range of empirical case studies of journeys through and encountered with space, this book builds new critical syntheses of the intertwining of space and life. Based on investigations undertaken by the author over the past 20 years, it explores the mundane and the exotic, the 'lay' and the 'artistic', combining and inter-relating them in a diversity of time and expression, fleeting and surviving. Such investigations, using both visual and non-visual material, include examinations of allotment holding, the work of artists, caravanning and tourism, photography and parish maps. The analyses of such seemingly disparate subjects are linked together and build on each other to create a fascinating and original view of humanity's interaction with space. Included are fresh discussions of belonging, disorientation and the working of identity and play. The notion of 'gentle politics' is introduced.

              Historians have tended to understand medieval conduct through the eyes of Enlightenment historians, seeing superior conduct as 'knightly' behaviour, categorising it as chivalry. This book shows what superior lay conduct was in Europe before chivalry, and maps how and why chivalry... emerged and redefined superior conduct in the late twelfth century.

              Introduces undergraduates to the key debates regarding space and culture and the key theoretical arguments which guide cultural geographical work. This book addresses the impact, significance, and characteristics of the 'cultural turn' in contemporary geography. It focuses on the... development of the cultural geography subdiscipline and on what has made it a peculiar and unique realm of study. It demonstrates the importance of culture in the development of debates in other subdisciplines within geography and beyond. In line with these previous themes, the significance of space in the production of cultural values and expressions is also developed. Along with its timely examination of the health of the cultural geographical subdiscipline, this book is to be valued for its analysis of the impact of cultural theory on studies elsewhere in geography and of ideas of space and spatiality elsewhere in the social sciences.
