The significance of place has been neglected in books recently published, which have attempted to examine ethnographic writing in terms of contemporary literary theory. The short aim of this volume is to comment upon a set of highly topical issues from the point of view of a distinct interest group. The long term aim is to provide a lasting account of regional writing as it seems to its practitioners in the 1980s.
