Riassunto:

What is a mountain? Seems like a simple question, right? But if we take the question seriously, the answers turn out to be complicated, wide ranging, and fascinating.

In The Mountain, geographers Bernard Debarbieux and Gilles Rudaz trace the origins of the very concept of a mountain, showing how it is not a mere geographic feature, but ultimately an idea, one that has evolved over time, influenced by changes in political climates and cultural attitudes. To truly understand mountains, they argue, we must view them not only as material realities but as social constructs, ones that can mean radically different things to different people in different settings. From the Enlightenment to the very present days, and thanks to a huge variety of case studies picked up in all the continents, the authors show us how our ideas of and about mountains have changed with the times and how a huge range of policies, from border delineation to forestry as well as nature protection and social policies, have been shaped according to them. A rich hybrid analysis of geography, history, culture, and politics, the book promises to forever change the way we look at mountains.


Sinossi: Usually defined in terms of their physical characteristics, mountains can also be seen through a social and cultural lens as national emblems, political boundaries, obstacles to be conquered and climbed, objects of conservation, and regional homes to often marginalized groups of people. This book, translated from the French, traces the history of such social constructions of mountains from Enlightenment Europe to the present. From Reims Mountain to the Sierra Nevada, by way of Fouta Djallon, the Andes of Patagonia, the Yukon, Mount Royal, the Naga Hills, and the center of Sulawesi, it also surveys the implications of globalization on mountain spaces and the people who inhabit them. A prominent theme is the role of individuals—from Alexander von Humboldt to John Muir to Dian Fossey, along with many lesser-known figures—in shaping and promoting western understandings of mountains, although, as the authors note, mountains have yet to find their own Jacques Cousteau.
