A Political Space
Reading the Global through Clayoquot Sound
Political Space by Warren Magnusson
Book DescriptionOn the remote outer coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Clayoquot Sound might seem to be situated at the periphery of contemporary power and authority. And yet, as the disputed land of native peoples and the contentious site of corporate logging in one of the world's last remaining temperate rain forests, Clayoquot Sound is also squarely in the middle of global politics today. These authors develop a new way of making sense of the rapidly changing character of political life in our day, revealing the political problems and possibilities inherent in the convergence of the global and the local so dramatically enacted in Clayoquot Sound.

The central argument of this book is that we need to abandon our state-centric approach to political understanding and learn to see 'like a city' if we are to make sense of contemporary politics.
