Description - Geographies of Resistance by Michael Keith
This work demonstrates how radical geographies of resistance emerge, develop and operate. Radical cultural politics, exemplified by the black, feminist and gay liberation, has developed struggles to turn 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 (staying in place), these are geographies where space is constitutive of the social. Geographers draw on material from around the world, including Israel, Nepal, Canada, Philipines, Nigeria and Australia. Recasting current themes in critical human geography - politics, identity and place - the contributors introduce unexplored notions of resistance, offering insights for those exploring social, cultural, urban, political and developmental issues in different worlds of change.
