Antipode is 40: 40 free Articles

Antipode is 40 years old in 2009! To celebrate this anniversary we are delighted to offer you free access to a range of key articles published in Antipode from 1969-2009. Some of the most influential social scientists have published in the journal - such as David Harvey, Mike Davis, Doreen Massey, Neil Smith, Linda McDowell and Cindi Katz - and its average citation impact over the last decade places it within the top 7 journals in Geography and the Environmental Sciences. The journal is distinctive not only because of the radical scholarship it publishes, but it also contributes to the wider project of critical social science in a number of ways, including offering annual Graduate Scholarships and running biannual Summer Institutes for young researchers. We hope you enjoy reading them!
