Geopolitics: Re-Visioning World Politics
Routledge, 2004 - 168 էջ
Geopolitics identifies and scrutinizes the central features of geopolitics from the sixteenth century to the present. The book focuses on five key concepts of the modern geopolitical imagination:
* Visualising the world as a whole
* The definition of geographical areas as 'advanced' or 'primitive'
* The notion of the state being the highest form of political organization
* The pursuit of primacy by competing states
* The necessity for hierarchy.
