“Future scholars interested in the analysis of urban and cultural geography in New Orleans will be…indebted to the work of Richard Campanella…. 'Geographies of New Orleans'…is a richly researched and extensively documented study that…will appeal to both a general and scholarly audience. [It] is a book to be studied over time….”
