Marcus Doel’s book Geographies of Violence: Killing Time, Killing Space is now published. This is the third book to appear in the Society and Space book series I edit with Sage.
We experience violence all our lives, from that very first scream of birth. It has been industrialized and domesticated. Our culture has not become totally accustomed to violence, but accustomed enough. Perhaps more than enough.
Geographies of Violence is a critical human geography of the history of violence, from Ancient Rome and Enlightened wars through to natural disasters, animal slaughter, and genocide. Written with incredible insight and flair, this is a thought-provoking text for human geography students and researchers alike
The other books published in the series so far are Dan Bulley’s Migration, Ethics and Power: Spaces of Hospitality in International Politics and Francisco R. Klauser’s Surveillance and Space. Other books in the series are under contract or review. If you’re interested in the series, please contact me.
