In the shadows of the tropics : climate, race and biopower in nineteenth century Ceylon by James S Duncan( )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 1,550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume investigates the transformation of Ceylon during the mid-nineteenth century into one of the most important coffee growing regions of the world and the consequent ecological disaster which erased coffee from the island." "Using this case study by way of illustration, this book reveals the spatial unevenness and fragmentation of modernity through a focus on modern governmentality and biopower. It argues that the practices of colonial power, and the differences that race and tropical climates were thought to make, were central to the working out of modern governmental rationalities." "Contributing an important rural focus to current work on studies of governmentality in geography, In the Shadows of the Tropics offers a welcome non-state dimension, with its emphasis on the role of the expanding plantation economy and the power of individual capitalists in the management of the lives and deaths of labourers, the destabilization of subsistence farming and the aggressive re-territorialization of populations from India to Ceylon. In this context, the usefulness of Foucault's notions of biopower, discipline and governmentality are examined."--Jacket

Power of Place (RLE Social & Cultural Geography) : Bringing Together Geographical and Sociological Imaginations by John A Agnew( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reflecting the revival of interest in a social theory that takes place and space seriously, this book focuses on geographical place in the practice of social science and history. There is significant interest among scholars from a range of disciplines in bringing together the geographical and sociological 'imaginations'. The geographical imagination is a concrete and descriptive one, concerned with determining the nature of places, and classifying them and the links between them. The sociological imagination aspires to explanation of human activities in terms of abstract social processes. T
