Joel Wainwright (OSU) has a new publication coming out (October 2012) called Geopiracy, Oaxaca, Militant Empiricism and Geographical Thought (Palgrave Pivot).
According to the blurb:
Why have geographers remained so quiet about the resurgence of military funding for geographical research? Joel Wainwright argues that the underlying problem stems from our epistemic commitment to empiricism. Much as some would like to deny it, many geographers are executing their own 'expeditions' in the spirit of Isaiah Bowman, the early twentieth-century geographer who shaped the discipline's empiricist epistemology while helping the US to build its empire (and from whom the Expeditions take their name).
