In mid-twentieth century France, the term "social space" ( l'espace social) -- the idea that spatial form and social life are inextricably linked -- emerged in a variety of social science disciplines. Taken up by the French New Left, it also came to inform the practice of urban planning. In The View from Above, Jeanne Haffner traces the evolution of the science of social space from the interwar period to the 1970s, illuminating in particular the role of aerial photography in this new way of conceptualizing socio-spatial relations. As early as the 1930s, the view from above served for Marcel Griaule and other anthropologists as a means of connecting the social and the spatial. Just a few decades later, the Marxist urban sociologist Henri Lefebvre called the perspective enabled by aerial photography -- a technique closely associated with the French colonial state and military -- "the space of state control." Lefebvre and others nevertheless used the notion of social space to recast the problem of massive modernist housing projects (grands ensembles) to encompass the modern suburb (banlieue) itself -- a critique that has contemporary resonance in light of the banlieue riots of 2005 and 2007. Haffner shows how such "views" permitted new ways of conceptualizing the old problem of housing to emerge. She also points to broader issues, including the influence of the colonies on the metropole, the application of sociological expertise to the study of the built environment, and the development of a spatially oriented critique of capitalism.

People usually get an aerial view of Cork flying to or from Cork Airport. But the view is short-lived and the close-up of the landscape disappears quickly. So aerial photographs can be absorbing as they appear to give a similar three dimensional aerial view. Dennis Horgan has flown extensively over Cork city and county and taken some spectacular photographs of the county's best scenery and various other man-made features to provide some unique imagery. From the ruggedness of West Cork to the fertile lowlands of East Cork, this collection showcases the beauty of the landscape from a rarely seen and often unusual perspective. So take a tour of Cork's varied landscape of coastline and mountain, rivers and lakes, ancient monastic sites and its colourful, vibrant city and towns.

From sixteenth-century Roman maps, to the Luftwaffe’s aerial survey of Warsaw, the London Eye to Google Earth, visual culture is saturated with aerial imagery. The aerial view - the image of everywhere- has become natural, desirable, omnipresent, yet its rise to pre-eminence as a ‘way of seeing’ raises pressing questions about its effects and meanings that have not yet been explored. More immediately than any other visual modality, aerial imagery gives us- and supports our idea of- a totalising overview, a world-view, and thus in turn requires that its implications be explored as the ‘symbolic form’ of the global era. However this ‘view of the world’ keeps undergoing transformations as technologies continue to be invented and refined. Underpinned by a cross-disciplinary approach that draws together diverse and previously isolated material, this text examines the politics and poetics of the aerial view in relation to architecture, art, film, literature, photography and urbanism, and explores its role in areas such as aesthetics and epistemology. Using examples of specific cultural moments to elucidate the wider theory, this is the only book to provide a cultural history of the aerial imagination and its centrality to visual culture.
