Celebrating 50 years of publishing a Radical Journal of Geography, 1969-2019
We’ve published some great book reviews recently…
Noel Castree (University of Wollongong) on Christophe Bonneuil and Jean-Baptiste Fressoz’s The Shock of the Anthropocene: The Earth, History, and Us;
Caroline Hossein (York University) on Gerda Roelvink, Kevin St. Martin and J.K. Gibson-Graham’s Making Other Worlds Possible: Performing Diverse Economies;
Amber Murrey (Jimma University) on Hannah Appel, Arthur Mason and Michael Watts’ Subterranean Estates: Life Worlds of Oil and Gas;
Sara Nelson (University of Minnesota) on Jason Moore’s Capitalism in the Web of Life: Ecology and the Accumulation of Capital;
Brototi Roy (Degrowth India Initiative) on Giacomo D’Alisa, Federico Demaria and Giorgos Kallis’ Degrowth: A Vocabulary for a New Era;
Gretchen Sneegas (University of Georgia) on Anna Tsing’s The Mushroom at the End of the World: On the Possibility of Life in Capitalist Ruins;
Gareth Walker (Consultant Specialist, Atkins Limited) on Gay Hawkins, Emily Potter and Kane Race’s Plastic Water: The Social and Material Life of Bottled Water; and
Marv Waterstone (University of Arizona) on Heather Merrill and Lisa Hoffman’s Spaces of Danger: Culture and Power in the Everyday.
All Antipode book reviews in our online repository, Wiley Online Library, are now freely available. While this digital archive will remain in place, we no longer publish 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.
