Geopiracy: Oaxaca, Militant Empiricism, and Geographical Thought

Portada
Palgrave Macmillan, 2013 M01 1 - 108 páginas
Geopiracy is a study of the 'Bowman expeditions'—a project through which geographers, with funding from the US Army, are mapping the 'human terrain' of foreign lands. Wainwright offers a critique of human geography today that draws on contemporary social theory to raise unsettling questions about the nature of geography's disciplinary formation.
