6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing upon the theories and methodologies of govern mentality as presented in Michel Foucault's translated lecture courses, Spaces of Colonialism provides an analysis of the attempts made by the Government of India to secure and order Delhi, the capital of the Raj from 1911 to 1947. Following the path from New Delhi to Old Delhi, this book contains a mass of new empirical data that illustrates how these seemingly separate cities were united by shared political rationalities and landscapes of control."--Jacket

Geographies of forced eviction : dispossession, violence, resistance( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a close look at forced evictions, drawing on empirical studies and conceptual frameworks from both the Global North and South. It draws attention to arenas where multiple logics of urban dispossession, violence and insecurity are manifest, and where wider socio-economic, political and legal struggles converge. The authors highlight the need to apply emotional and affective registers of dispossession and insecurity to the socio-political and financial economies driving forced evictions across geographic scales. The chapters each consider the distinct urban logics of precarious housing or involuntary displacements that stretch across London, Barcelona, Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai and Colombo. A timely addition to existing literature on urban studies, this collection will be of great interest to policy makers and scholars of human geography, development studies, and sociology
