About this title

Synopsis:

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.
