"A breath-taking and original analysis of the ways in which subjectivity, power and knowledge intertwine to produce geographies of exclusion . . . always engaging and committed, deploying insights from psychoanalysis, social anthropology and black and feminist criticism which are richly illustrated by examples drawn from Lilliput to London, from "Taxi Driver to Chicago . . . invaluable for understanding the effects of intolerance to difference."
-Steve Pile, Open University
"A stimulating and imaginative exploration of the boundaries of human geography itself."
-David Morley, Goldsmiths College, London
"A book of remarkable synoptic powers. Sibley shows how psychologically-rooted fears of the Other lead to exclusionary geographies at every spatial scale."
-Jennifer R. Wolch, University of Southern California
