A Radical Geography Community

Book Reviews, etc.

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 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.

If you’ve an idea for a review, please see our guidelines and get in touch with our Book Reviews editor, Andy Kent.

    Pam Nogales and I, members of the Platypus Affiliated Society, recently interviewed the Italian Hegelian-Marxist philosopher and historian Domenico Losurdo, author of Liberalism: A Counter-History (2006, translated 2011).  We talked about Marxism, the problematic legacy of liberalism, and the State.  You might be interested in checking out the edited transcript of our conversation, which was recently published in The Platypus Review.

    You can also find full video of the interview on our Vimeo page.
