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 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.

About the Author:

James A. Tyner (Ph.D., University of Southern California) is Professor Geography at Kent State University. His research interests include political, population, and social geography. He is the author of 11 books, including Military Geographies: A World Made by War (Routledge).

Review:

"This highly original text delivers what it promises, and does so with clarity, style and purpose. The chapters build beautifully on one another as they demonstrate the role of everyday violence in shaping space and place at multiple scales, including the home, the school, the city and the nation state. The book provides inspiration for new potentialities of engaged geographic pedagogy and research and will therefore make a major contribution across the curriculum."―Gail Hollander, Geography, Florida International University

"In this insightful book, James Tyner skillfully presents an analysis of the interpersonal geographies of violence in explorations of the structuring of violence in the home, in the school, on the street, and in the community. This book is a must for students, scholars and activists who seek to understand the spatial dynamics of violence and to develop strategies of resistance."―Melissa Wright, Geography and Women’s Studies, Pennsylvania State University

"Tyner is the first writer to bring place, space and violence together in coherent text. A discussion structured from homes to schools, and then streets and communities creates an appropriate pedagogic device that does not fall into the trap of suggesting forms of violence are conditioned by scale."―Stuart Aitken, Geography, San Diego State University
