Description - Entanglements of Power by Ronan Paddison
This text provides an account of the relationship between domination and resistance within the parameters of geography. The book argues that practices of resistance cannot be separated from practices of domination, and that they are always entangled in some way. The contributors explore themes of identity, embodiment, organization, colonialism, and political transformation, examining them from historical and contemporary perspectives within a wide geographical and cultural spectrum. Case studies include: German reunification; Jamaican yardies on British television; Victorian sexuality and moralization; ethnicity, gender and nation in Ecuador; and sport as power.
