Rethinking Geopolitics


Cold War geopolitics may be dead but struggles over space and power are more important than ever in a world of globalizing economies and instantaneous information.

The contributors to this collection use insights from contemporary cultural theory to address questions of political identity and popular culture, state violence and genocide, militarism, gender and resistance, cyberwar and mass media. By exploring how popular cultural assumptions about geography and politics constitute the debate about contemporary violence and political economy, Rethinking Geopolitics argues that the concept of geopolitics needs to be reconceptualized as the twenty-first century approaches.
