Geographies of violence.

Butler-Warke, Alice



Through Geographies of Violence, Marcus Doel, Professor of Human Geography at Swansea University, allows us to delve into a ‘carnival of cannibalism’. His monograph is a veritable curiosity cabinet of violence and terror that permits readers to explore tales of horror in a lineage that ‘is neither logical, nor causal, nor geographical, nor historical’. It is this montage approach that is the book's strength and weakness.
