A Radical Geography Community
We’ve published some great book reviews on AntipodeFoundation.org recently, including…
Christopher Taylor (University of Chicago) on Martha Schoolman’s Abolitionist Geographies;
Karen McCallum (University of London) on Gita Sen and Marina Durano’s The Remaking of Social Contracts: Feminists in a Fierce New World;
Anna Laing (Northumbria University) on Leandro Vergara-Camus’ Land and Freedom: The MST, the Zapatistas and Peasant Alternatives to Neoliberalism;
Anthony Ince (Stockholm University) on Constance Bantman and Bert Altena’s Reassessing the Transnational Turn: Scales of Analysis in Anarchist and Syndicalist Studies;
Mike Hodson (University of Manchester) on Federico Caprotti’s Eco-Cities and the Transition to Low Carbon Economies;
Kate Shaw (University of Melbourne) on Kirsteen Paton’s Gentrification: A Working-Class Perspective; and
Kevin Gould (Concordia University) on Silvia Posocco’s Secrecy and Insurgency: Socialities and Knowledge Practices in Guatemala.
As you might know, all Antipode book reviews in our online repository, Wiley Online Library, are now freely available. While this digital archive will remain in place, from January 2013 we’ve no longer published book reviews in the journal; all book reviews have migrated to AntipodeFoundation.org. This has allowed us to feature not only more reviews, but also more substantive reviews (in the style, say, of the London Review of Books or the Boston Review), more quickly.
The makeover, we hope, is transforming the book reviews section into a more capacious ‘Book reviews, etc.’ section, that may now feature, in addition to book reviews, reviews of film and music, grey literature, and political pamphlets – in fact, any texts that have something to say to the radical geographic imagination. We also welcome reviews of non-English-language texts – reviews that break down some of the barriers between language communities, enabling hitherto under-represented groups, regions, countries and institutions to enrich conversations and debates in Antipode.
