'This volume derails the common assumption that geography is a simple study of earth's basic inertness. Far more than the topography of volumes and voids, geography concerns itself with a dynamic topology of knots, twists, buckles, and folds, which constitute the relations between earth and earth-bound subjects. Through a variety of psychoanalytic approaches, the essays compellingly demonstrate that the unconscious of these subjects operate as the underside of geographical exteriority.'Joan Copjec, Brown University, USA'For anyone looking for a comprehensive guide to the complex relations between psychoanalysis and geography, this is the book! Kingsbury and Pile's collection is a must read.'Anthony Elliott, Hawke Research Institute, Australia
