"A challenging, accessible and extremely thought-provoking volume which raises a plethora of critical questions about the future of space and power that ought to cause geographers to question too-comfortable theoretical suppositions." British Journal of Sociology "There is much within its impressive content that I believe can be of interest to group analysts. This book is steeped in historical appreciation and detail." Group Analysis "Space and Power is a compelling and often witty critique of 'the end of geography' thesis, and a searching examination of the contemporary relevance of the work of Febvre and Vidal de la Blache. An important book by a truly first-rate thinker." Stuart Corbridge, London School of Economics and Political Science
