"Place attachments are emotional bonds that form between people and their physical surroundings. These connections are a powerful aspect of human life that inform our sense of identity, create meaning in our lives, facilitate community and influence action. Place attachments affect issues as diverse as rootedness and belonging, placemaking and displacement, mobility and migration, intergroup conflict, civic engagement, social housing and urban redevelopment, natural resource management and global climate change. In this multidisciplinary book, Manzo and Devine-Wright draw together the latest thinking by leading scholars from around the globe, capturing important advancements in three areas: theory, research and application. Together, authors critically review and challenge contemporary knowledge, identify significant advances and point to areas for future research.This is the contemporary 'go-to' resource for up to date understandings about place attachment, a critical concept for the environmental social sciences and place-making professions.

"Place attachment refers to the emotional bonds that arise between individuals, communities and particular locations. These ties can affect issues as diverse as mobility and migration, social housing, natural resource management, intergroup conflict and civic engagement. Different perspectives on the definitions of place attachment, how it is studied and how practical lessons are applied, are explored in the multi-disciplinary chapters of Place Attachment. The book is divided into three sections: theory, methodology and practical application. Within each section, contributors critically review the contemporary knowledge, identify significant advances, and point to knowledge gaps for future research. Manzo and Devine-Wright draw together contributions from an international group of leading scholars from different disciplines, utilising diverse epistemologies and methodologies. This is the contemporary "go-to" resource for up to date understandings about place attachment, a crucial concept for the environmental social sciences and place-making professions"--
