From the Publisher“Allen moves the debate on power into the everyday effects ofhuman social action. In so doing he not only enriches the debate innumerous ways but also shows how theoretical discussion of powercan no longer avoid addressing power’s inherentspatiality.”
John Agnew, Department of Geography, UCLA
“John Allen provides new maps of the spatiality of power.The wonderful thing is not just that some familiar accounts arerevitalised, but also that new forms of understanding power areborn.”
Professor Nigel Thrift
John Allen offers us a refreshing and provocative account ofpower in social theory, attending in particular to one of itsmissing dimensions, that of space ... this is an attractive book,welcome in particular for its attention to the complexities andmultiple modalities of power."

"Lost Geographies of Powers is a subtle and well arguedbook. It deserves a wider readership than its title suggests andshould be read by social scientists in general, not justgeographers."
