Abstract:

This book sets a new agenda for the study of military geography with its critical analysis of the ways in which military control over space is legitimized. Drawing on her own original research, the author explores the ways in which militarism and military activities control development, the use of space, and our understanding of place. She concentrates on military lands, establishments, and personnel in contemporary peacetime settings, highlighting the pervasiveness of these forces in shaping everyday lives. The geographies under scrutiny are primarily those of advanced capitalist economies, particularly in Europe, North America, and Australasia.
