Samenvatting

Paul Hirst was one was one of the most original thinkers of his generation. This book is being published post-humously after his tragic death in 2003. Written with verve and lucidity, it is a scholarly account of the various ways in which space is configured by power, and in which space becomes a resource for power. Erudite and exciting, the book combines new and old theory in an imaginative, yet pragmatic, way. It is typical of Hirst's ability to make inspiriational leaps across theoretical and disciplinary boundaries, critically combining insights from social theory, politics, history and geography.

This is an important, forward-looking book that will influence academic debate for many years to come.

Recensie(s)

A challenging, accessible and extremely thought-provoking volume which raises a plethora of critical questions about the future of space and power that ought to cause geographers to question too-comfortable theoretical suppositions. British Journal of Sociology Space and Power is a compelling and often witty critique of 'the end of geography' thesis, and a searching examination of the contemporary relevance of the work of Febvre and Vidal de la Blache. An important book by a truly first-rate thinker. Stuart Corbridge, London School of Economics and Political Science
