Direct, interpersonal violence is a pervasive, yet often mundane feature of our day-to-day lives- paradoxically, violence is both ordinary and extraordinary. Violence, in other words, is often hidden in plain sight. Space, Place, and Violence seeksMoreDirect, interpersonal violence is a pervasive, yet often mundane feature of our day-to-day lives- paradoxically, violence is both ordinary and extraordinary. Violence, in other words, is often hidden in plain sight. Space, Place, and Violence seeks to uncover that which is too apparent: to critically question both violent geographies and the geographies of violence.

With a focus on direct violence, this book situates violent acts within the context of broader political and structural conditions. Violence, it is argued, is both a social and spatial practice. Adopting a geographic perspective, Space, Place, and Violence provides a critical reading of how violence takes place and also produces place. Specifically, four spatial vignettes -- home, school, streets, and community -- are introduced, designed so that students may think critically how race, sex, gender, and class inform violent geographies and geographies of violence.
