Dissident Geographies is an accessible and lively exploration of radical perspectives in human geography. The perspectives examined in the book reveal and resist certain power relations that have constituted geographical knowledge. The book has two main aims. First, rather than reify 'the' geographical tradition, Dissident Geographies introduces a number of geographical traditions that challenge and destabilize what counts as geographical knowledge. Second, the book shows how the production of geographical knowledge is tied to politics and struggles outside as well as within the academy. In each chapter, case studies illustrate the spatiality of political practice and the politics of geographical thought. In this way Dissident Geographies reveals the connections between power, politics and geographical knowledge.

Presents new empirical research by a network of garment workers' support organizations in ten different locations in Asia, Europe and Mexico. Creates a blueprint for conducting worker-orientated action research in order to better understand and resist the negative impact of globalization on labour. Ensures that workers' voices reach those who are already trying to reconfigure global capitalism in more humane directions. Explores the ways in which workers might begin to develop new forms of organization that are more suited to securing gains in the global garment industry. Bridges the gap between activist and academic research, improving the conversation between these two groups.

Man's impact on the landscape is obvious although, as this book makes clear, his relationship with the landscape is a complicated one and is both physical and emotional. This collection of 'stories', written by both field archaeologists and academics, aims to show how archaeology can give us 'an idea of how people in the past thought and moved about their landscapes on a routine, daily basis'. Combining theory with archaeological data the contributors discuss such themes as: landscape and technology; relams of existence in the early Neolithic of southern Britain; forest wilderness in the Middle Ages; the urban sprawl of Mexico City; architecture and buildings; the prehistoric Peak District; Cranborne Chase in Dorset; boundaries. Poems and interesting illustrations complement the stories.
