Synopsis

Direct, interpersonal violence is a pervasive, yet often mundane feature of our day-to-day lives; paradoxically, violence is both ordinary and extraordinary. Violence, in other words, is often hidden in plain sight. Space, Place, and Violence seeks to uncover that which is too apparent: to critically question both violent geographies and the geographies of violence. With a focus on direct violence, this book situates violent acts within the context of broader political and structural conditions. Violence, it is argued, is both a social and spatial practice. Adopting a geographic perspective, Space, Place, and Violence provides a critical reading of how violence takes place and also produces place. Specifically, four spatial vignettes - home, school, streets, and community - are introduced, designed so that students may think critically how `race', sex, gender, and class inform violent geographies and geographies of violence.

James A. Tyner (Ph.D., University of Southern California) is Professor Geography at Kent State University. His research interests include political, population, and social geography. He is the author of 11 books, including Military Geographies: A World Made by War (Routledge).
