"Cowen’s The Deadly Life of Logistics: Mapping Violence in Global Trade is a welcome contribution, clearly showing how something as purely technical as logistics has turned into a phenomenon shaping politics in several different relams, and will surely be a good read for those interested in political geography, critical geopolitics, labor rights, the history of logistics, and international relations."—International Studies Review
"Cowen’s [The Deadly Life of Logistics]provides a much-needed alternative and critical reading of the spatial organization of logistics. It is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the changing nature of economic space in neoliberal economies."—The Canadian Geographer
"Cowen’s work rightfully challenges the dominant discourses that have pervaded the academic debates on logistics."—Cultural Geography
"Cowen generates a comprehensive historic and contemporary critique of the everyday violence associated with global trade."—Human Geography
