  • Gendered Experiences of Genocideby Choman Hardi

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Between February and September 1988, the Iraqi government destroyed over 2000 Kurdish villages, killing somewhere between 50,000 and 100,000 civilians and displacing many more. The operation was codenamed Anfal which literally means 'the spoils of war'. For the survivors of this campaign, Anfal did not end in September 1988: the aftermath of this... more...

  • Geographies of Mobilities: Practices, Spaces, Subjectsby Tim Cresswell; Peter Merriman

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 49.95

    Over the past fifteen years or so, there has been a widespread and increasing fascination with the theme of mobility across the social sciences and humanities. Of course, geographers have always had an interest in mobility, but as yet they have not viewed this in the same 'mobility turn' as in other disciplines where it has been used to critique the... more...

  • Cultural Landscapes of Post-Socialist Citiesby Mariusz Czepczynski

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    The cultural landscapes of Central European cities reflect over half a century of socialism and are marked by the Marxists' vision of a utopian landscape. Architecture, urban planning and the visual arts were considered to be powerful means of expressing the 'people's power'. However, since the velvet revolutions of 1989, this urban scenery has been... more...

  • Food Fearsby Alison Blay-Palmer

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    The industrial food system of the West is increasingly perceived as problematic. The physical, social and intellectual distance between consumers and their food stems from a food system that privileges quantity and efficiency over quality, with an underlying assumption that food is a commodity, rather than a source of nourishment and pleasure. In... more...

  • Placing the Border in Everyday Lifeby Reece Jones; Corey Johnson

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Bordering no longer happens only at the borderline separating two sovereign states, but rather through a wide range of practices and decisions that occur in multiple locations within and beyond the state’s territory. Nevertheless, it is too simplistic to suggest that borders are everywhere, since this view fails to acknowledge that particular sites... more...

  • Everyday Culture in Europeby Máiréad Nic Craith; Ullrich Kockel

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    This book discusses the history and contemporary practice of studying cultures 'at home', by examining Europe's regional or 'small' ethnologies of the past, present and future. With the rise of nationalism and independence in Europe, ethnologies have often played a major role in the nation-building process. The contributors to this book offer case... more...

  • Geographies of Obesityby Karen Witten; Jamie Pearce

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Over the past two decades, rates of adult and childhood obesity in the developed world have risen sharply. By the year 2000, 65% of the United States population were overweight, 30% of these obese. Whilst medical treatment has tended to focus on individual habits of diet and exercise, this approach does little to account for globally increasing levels... more...

  • Geographies of Rhythmby Tim Edensor

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    In Rhythmanalysis, Henri Lefebvre put forward his ideas on the relationship between time and space, particularly how rhythms characterize space. Here, leading geographers advance and expand on Lefebvre's theories, examining how they intersect with current theoretical and political concerns within the social sciences. In terms of geography, rhythmanalysis... more...

  • Carceral Spacesby Nick Gill; Dominique Moran

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    This book draws together the work of a new community of scholars with a growing interest in carceral geography: the geographical study of practices of imprisonment and detention. It combines work by geographers on 'mainstream' penal establishments where people are incarcerated by the prevailing legal system, with geographers' recent work on migrant... more...

  • Landscape, Race and Memoryby Divya Praful Tolia-Kelly

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Memory is seldom explored through the experience of geographically mobile, racialized populations. Whilst the relationships between the political value of landscape and national memory have previously been written through, there has been little mention of postcolonial, 'diasporic' racialized citizens. Using both visual and material culture, this... more...
