We are frequently beset by images of war and hostility in the media, and politicians seem constantly to be in search of a means of peaceful resolution to conflicts around the world. But what do we mean by peace? Is peace simply an absence of war? When discussed by politicians, journalists, academics, even activists, it is frequently assumed that we all know: peace is left undefined.

Geographies of Peace is the first book wholly dedicated to exploring the geography of peace. Drawing on recent theoretical developments and detailed empirical research from around the world, the contributors argue that it is necessary to conceptualize peace as richly as recent scholarship has done with regard to war.

About the Author:

Fiona McConnell is Research fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge University, UK. Her research interests include the everyday construction of statehood and sovereignty in cases of territoriality.

Nick Megoran is Senior Lecturer in Human Geography, Newcastle University, UK. His research centres on the geographies and geopolitics of post-Cold War inter-state relations especially with regard to the building of nations-sates in Central Asia and to the place of religion and the church in war and peace.

Philippa Williams is Lecturer in Human Geography, School of Geography, Queen Mary, University of London, UK. She is interested in questions of violence and non-violence, citizenship, marginalization, and the politics of development in South Asia.

Book Description I.B.Tauris & Co. Ltd., United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. From handshakes on the White House lawn to Picasso's iconic dove of peace, the images and stereotypes of peace are powerful, widespread and easily recognizable. Yet if we try to offer a concise definition of peace it is altogether a more complicated exercise. Not only is peace an emotive and value-laden concept, it is also abstract, ambiguous and seemingly inextricably tied to its antithesis: war. And it is war and violence that have been so compellingly studied within critical geography in recent years. This volume offers an attempt to redress that balance, and to think more expansively and critically about what peace means and what geographies of peace may entail. The editors begin with an examination of critical approaches to peace in other disciplines and a helpful genealogy of peace studies within geography. The book is then divided into three sections. The opening section examines how the idea of peace may be variously constructed and interpreted according to different sites and scales. The chapters in the second section explore a remarkably wide range of techniques of peacemaking.This widens the discussion from the archetypical image of top-down, diplomatic state-led initiatives to imperial boundary making practices, grassroots cultural identity assertion, boycotts, self-immolation, ex-paramilitary community activism, and 'protective accompaniment'.The final section shifts the scale and focus to everyday personal relations and a range of practices around the concept of coexistence. In their concluding chapter the editors spell out some of the key questions that they believe a geography of peace must address: What spatial factors have facilitated the success or precipitated the failure of some peace movements or diplomatic negotiations? Why are some ideologies productive of violence in some places but co-operation in others? How have some communities been better able to deal with religious, racial, cultural and class conflict than others? How have creative approaches to sharing sovereignty mitigated or transformed territorial disputes that once seemed intractable? Geographies of Peace is the first book wholly devoted to exploring the geography of peace.Drawing on both recent advances in social and political theory and detailed empirical research covering four continents, it makes a significant intervention into current debates about peace and violence.
