This volume focuses upon the synergy between geography and international politics. A new geopolitics is developed, bringing together the insights of political geography and international relations. In each chapter, leading scholars focus on the spatial context through which contemporary world politics are conducted. War, conflict, cooperation, state building and power are examined in a geopolitical context.
Together these chapters suggest a new mode of geopolitical analysis, present several important analyses using this approach, and detail how such an approach may be more broadly applied. Uniting the efforts of political scientists, geographers and economists, this volume serves as a clarion for new geopolitical analysis.
