BOOK SYNOPSIS
"Geographies of New Orleans" integrates hundreds of historical sources with custom-made maps, graphs, photos, and satellite images to explore the intricate urban fabrics of one of the world's most fascinating cities; from its fragile deltaic terrain to its striking built environment, from its diverse ethnic makeup to its devastation by Hurricane Katrina.

BOOK REVIEWS
"...a superb contribution to the physical and cultural geography of New Orleans. It surpasses in scope and depth the previous geographies '‚'‚¬Ã‚¦ and will probably stand out in future years as a minor classic."
- Tim Reilly, Ph.D.


"...an intellectually rich manuscript... based on intensive research and much primary source material... A fine example of local scholarship."
- Craig E. Colten, Ph.D.


"There is, literally, something for everyone ... (it) should become required reading for all those planning the city's future."
Susan Larson, New Orleans Times-Picayune
