Topologies of Poweramounts to a departure in the way that geography and power have been understood. It calls into question the very idea that power is simply extended across a given territory or network. The pervasive quality of governments to reach into our lives, the ability of far flung corporations to register their presence at close quarters and the ease with which NGOS fold global harms into local campaigns, all speak to a world in which distance is no longer a question of what is near and what is far. Such actions speak to a world in which proximity and distance play across one another, where topology not topography offers a better grasp of the workings of power today. Drawing upon a diverse range of case studies, this book will be invaluable for students in human geography, politics, cultural studies, STS and urban studies.
