Rethinking Communication Geographies Geomedia, Digital Logistics and the Human Condition André Jansson, Karlstad University, Sweden ‘This book offers an innovative and exciting framework for understanding how the digitally mediated world is increasingly experienced: logistically. Its sustained attention to the entanglement of spatiality and communicative media, as well as to the differentiated possibilities for everyday human agency that then emerge, is particularly insightful and welcome.’ – Gillian Rose, University of Oxford, UK May 2022 208 pp Hardback 978 1 78990 626 4 £80.00 / $115.00 Rethinking Human Geography series Handbook of Culture and Glocalization Edited by Victor N.

Yet, I found this book to be her most interesting piece of writing. It is experimental in form and successfully mixes stories of real-world change processes, with auto-biographical reflection and conceptual analysis in a way which really made me think.
