This is a must-read collection that will stand as a pivotal reference point in the field. Camps Revisited is innovative in its theorisations of the camp as a key political technology and comprehensive in its geopolitical mapping of the globe’s camp archipelagos. This book reveals the camp’s entangled complexities, multidimensional uses and its contested relations of power.
This book is an urgent intervention into the spatial, political and juridical spaces of camps. It analyses camps as historical and contemporary structures, as a space that is contingent and ubiquitous, urban and makeshift. Above all, it makes us recognize how camps are now a central feature of our political and geographical lives.
