Entanglements of Power by Paul Routledge
Book DescriptionThis book argues that practices of resistance cannot be separated from practices of domination, and that they are always entangled in some configuration. They are inextricably linked, such that one always bears at least a trace of the other that contaminates or subverts it. The team of contributors explore themes of identity, embodiment, organisation, colonialism, and political transformation, examining them from historical, contemporary and more abstract perspectives within a wide geographical and cultural spectrum. Case studies include German Reunification; Jamaican Yardies on British Television; Victorian Sexuality and Moralisation in Cremorne Gardens; Ethnicity, Gender and Nation in Ecuador; Sport as Power; the film Falling Down. Entanglements of Power presents an exciting and challenging account of the symbiotic relationship between domination and resistance, and contextualises this within the parameters of geography with a rich body of case-study material and a respected team of contributors.

Global Justice Networks, Paperback (July 2016)
Provides a critical investigation of the 'global justice movement'. Drawing upon three case studies - a peasant farmers' network, a trade union network, and the social forum process - the authors argue that the role of key geographical concepts of space, place and scale are crucial to an understanding of the operational dynamics of these networks.
Wilson, Paperback (September 2006)
Harold Wilson held out the promise of technology and of 'the Britain that is going to be forged in the white heat of this revolution'. A balance of payment crisis, leading to devaluation in 1967, frustrated the fulfilment of his prime ministerial promises.
