Interpreting the use of photography over the past hundred years, British art historian Taylor engages . Synthesis is also lacking-analytical substantiation is replaced by persistent reiteration and the sub-topics do not mesh to a whole.

Interpreting the use of photography over the past hundred years, British art historian Taylor engages in a mission of political correctiveness, following the Marxist credo that human activity can best be explained by the forces of oppressive economic and class structures. Women will find that his s" reaffirms stereotypes presumably discarded in the '60s. Nonetheless, it may well gain a place on politically correct, postmodern bookshelves.

July 1997 · Cultural Geographies. This paper explores the construction of an imagined urban landscape through the employment of subjective point of view in Henry Roth's modernist novel Call It Sleep (1934). This involves an engagement with Robert Alter's recent critical writings on 19th and 20th century European novels in terms of their 'experiential realism'.

landscape, photography and the tourist's imagination. Landscape photography. Published 1994 by Manchester University Press in Manchester. Written in Undetermined.

This work explores English society and its relationship to the landscape, as seen through photography and tourism over the last 100 years. The major tourist venues are covered, including Stonehenge, National Trust houses, the Lake District and Shakespeare country. A variety of photographs are included in the book, from Victorian pastoral scenes and Emerson's views of Norfolk, to instant "snaps" of historic tourist sites and Martin Parr's images of end-of-the-century society. Taylor shows how the British frame their aspirations through their approach to photography of the English landscape and their feelings about the past. Despite persistent efforts to remake England, and to preserve its perceived unity through photographic images, a fragmented society is exposed, raising issues of national identity, gender and race.
