This post builds on the research article “The City as Barracks: Freetown, Monrovia, and the Organization of Violence in Postcolonial African Cities,” which was published in the August 2007 issue of the Society’s peer-reviewed journal, Cultural Anthropology.
Cultural Anthropology has published several essays on militarization, the military, and resistance. See, for example Linda Green’s "Fear as a Way of Life" (1994); Lesley Gill’s "Creating Citizens, Making Men: The Military and Masculinity in Bolivia" (1997); and Donald S. Moore’s "Subaltern Struggles and the Politics of Place: Remapping Resistance in Zimbabwe’s Eastern Highlands" (1998).
Cultural Anthropology has also published a range of essays cities and urbanity. See, for example, Michael Dear’s "The Premature Demise of Postmodern Urbanism" (1994); Emanuela Guano "Spectacles of Modernity: Transnational Imagination and Local Hegemonies in Neoliberal Buenos Aires" (2002); Benjamin Chesluk’s "Visible Signs of a City Out of Control: Community Policing in New York City" (2004); and William Cunningham Bissell’s "Engaging Colonial Nostalgia" (2005).
