The Geopolitics Reader

Synopsis

From the coining of the term at the beginning of the century to its now common use as a sign for global conflict and change, the problematic of geopolitics is a revealing window into the great struggles over power and space that have dominated our century.Today, the problematic of geopolitics is more relevant than ever as new global struggles over power and space shape the emergent form of the post-Cold War world. The Geopolitics Reader is an interdisciplinary collection of the most important political, geographical, historical and sociological readings surrounding geopolitics. The Editors, leading scholars across different subfields and regions, offer clear introductions and critical comment on each section, encouraging exploration of divergent viewpoints at the forefront of study of global conflict and change - on imperialism, racism, environmental degradation, ethno-nationalism, post-modernism.This invaluable compendium introduces fresh perspectives on discourse, power, gender and political economy - the most important issues and debates surrounding geopolitics in the late twentieth century.
