This is an edited volume based on a series of lectures about the importance of locality in social and political science. It reflects the recent revival of interest in a social theory that takes place and space seriously. The essays work around and upon two major themes: the intellectual history of concepts of place and the interpellation of power and place. They do so in different ways. The authors stress, however, that they are not "engaged in the comtemplation of the idiographic" and this work should not be read in this way. They are concerned "with the role of place in social organization and social thought, not as an end in itself".
