Description: Until very recently, questions of resistance were usually addressed through analysis of power distribution and the struggles therein. Geographies of Resistance demonstrates how new, radical geographies of resistance emerge, develop, and operate. Radical cultural politics, exemplified by the black, feminist and gay movements, has changed the face of struggles, turning traditional sites of oppression and discrimination into spaces of resistance. Post-colonial and queer theory has opened up new political spaces; whether resistance is an act of transgression (crossing borders), opposition (such as constructing barricades), or everyday endurance (sit-ins), these are geographies where space is constitutive of the social "event".

Leading contemporary geographers draw on material from around the world, including Act-Up in Vancouver and the conflicts among oil, Islam and the Ogoni in Nigeria. Recasting current themes in critical human geography -- politics, identity and place -- the contributors introduce unexplored notions of resistance, offering exciting insights for those exploring social, cultural, urban, political and development issues in different worlds of change.

Geographies of Resistance will reframe the research agenda in global cultural geography.
-- Presents radical reinterpretations of the relationship among political identities, political spaces and radical politics
-- Contains diverse global selection of case studies
