‘Space, Knowledge and Power: Foucault and Geography elaborates Foucault’s thinking about geography and space in fascinating ways. Foucault scholars will be delighted and perhaps amazed to see this side of Foucault, and the book will immediately become an essential text for all geographers and everyone interested in Foucault’s understanding of space and its broader influence in the social sciences and social and cultural theory.’
John Pickles, Earl N. Phillips Distinguished Professor of International Studies, University of North Carolina, USA

‘For anyone interested in Foucault, geography and space, this is the essential reference work. This outstanding and comprehensive collection brings together for the first time, not only original texts by Foucault, but also the work of French and Anglophone commentators and authorities in the area. An invaluable and beautifully organized resource, highly recommended for both students and scholars alike.’
Clare O’ Farrell, Queensland University of Technology, Australia

  4. Your book would be instructive for my friends and I who write about geography and urban space in a very local journal dedicated to the realization and further articulation of what the Situationists called “unitary urbanism” – except we have an anti-civ approach to all of it.
