'It is not enough to say "face your fear". Your "fear" or our "fear", contemporary debates too often treat "fear" as if it can be resisted, manipulated, denied, transformed. This collection of essays takes complexities about "fear" and enables us to do all of the above. Its eclectic and challenging contributions place the "fear" debate into lived experience, political realities and histories, "known" resistance and acceptance of one's place in a complex world. A must read, and a must discuss, with a little hope rather than fear thrown in.' Betsy Stanko, Royal Holloway, University of London and London Metropolitan Police 'This book delivers in its aim to provide a new way of knowing what fear is and the many ways it functions within society .' MC Reviews '...In connecting geopolitics to everyday life, the authors revitalise the debate and shed light on the meanings and emotions of human beings in different settings and with different privileges, or lack thereof...The editors also clearly show how the research on fear of crime goes far beyond issues of criminology, safety and security, and how a lower priority given to everyday life has been a shortcoming in the greater discussion on geopolitics. The book is recommended to scholars from different disciplines and interests as fear touches upon so many parts of life.' Urban Studies
