Reviews
Casting astute eyes on a very different landscape, in Ecologies of Power, Pierre Bélanger... and Alexander Arroyo, assess U.S. military 'logistical landscapes' and the 'military geographies' of defense, conducted on a scale large enough to mark, and even remake, the planet.--Harvard Magazine--

Bélanger and Arroyo have made an effective case for the extent and import of the landscapes in which [critical, spatial] questions operate...the questions Ecologies of Power raises figure a substantive, if largely unexplored, agenda for design.

--Journal of Architectural Education--

Bélanger and Arroyo's analysis focuses on the aspects of Department of Defense (DOD) operations that are constructive and visible in the process contravening the fashion in war studies of foregrounding (to the extent possible) covert operations, state secrecy, and the destructiveness of military force as emblematic of modern war.

--Air & Space Power Journal--

This is an extraordinary book in many ways. What started as a mapping project developed over seven years into a book that uses numerous disciplines to describe how the power of the US military--the 'single largest landowner, equipment contractorand energy consumer in the world' (16:43-44)--is expressed in space, over time and to scale.
