Lost Geographies of Power Reviews

"Allen moves the debate on power into the everyday effects of human social action. In so doing he not only enriches the debate in numerous ways but also shows how theoretical discussion of power can no longer avoid addressing power's inherent spatiality." John Agnew, Department of Geography, UCLA "John Allen provides new maps of the spatiality of power. The wonderful thing is not just that some familiar accounts are revitalised, but also that new forms of understanding power are born." Professor Nigel Thrift John Allen offers us a refreshing and provocative account of power in social theory, attending in particular to one of its missing dimensions, that of space ... this is an attractive book, welcome in particular for its attention to the complexities and multiple modalities of power." American Journal of Sociology "Lost Geographies of Powers is a subtle and well argued book. It deserves a wider readership than its title suggests and should be read by social scientists in general, not just geographers." Area
