Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the social geographies of banishment. It uses police records and other data sources in order to identify central patterns, such as the dominant use of banishment to control the socially marginal. It observes that banishment is geographically concentrated in certain locales, especially in downtown areas with pronounced poverty and gentrification. This chapter concludes that banishment is used on some of the most disadvantaged urban residents, such as those who are perceived as nuisances.

Keywords:   social geographies, central patterns, banishment, socially marginal, geographic concentration, disadvantaged urban residents, nuisances
