In This Issue: Politics & Spaces

The author considers how autocratic rulers use “spectacular” projects to shape state-society relations, by looking at the unspectacular “others.” The contrasting views of those from the poorest regions toward these new national capitals help her develop a geographic approach to spectacle.

This book explores how the reliance on the natural science approach to space within environmental planning has led to a return of exclusionary discourses, in paradoxical contrast to the stated claims of designing ‘peace parks’.
