I really cant justify why i always end up picking-up academic anthologies..but i thoroughly enjoy this one.

Stephen Graham is rad and is on the cutting edge of geography field. He writes a lot about the idea of spatial violence and specifically about Israel/Palestine. I would also credit his research with my recent interest & engagement with geography/urban studies/architecture.

I'd say at least 2/3 of the essays in this book are worth the read.
