We live in a rapidly changing world in which politics is becoming both more and less predictable at the same time: this makes it a particularly exciting topic to study. To make sense of the continuities and disruptions within this political world requires a strongly focused yet flexible text. This new (fifth) edition of Peter Taylor’s seminal Political Geography proves itself fit for the task of coping with a frequently and rapidly changing geo-political landscape. Co-authored again with Colin Flint, it retains the intellectual clarity, rigour and vision of previous editions, based upon its world-systems approach. At the same time new theories and approaches are blended into established frameworks to provide more nuanced ways of understanding political geography today. Additionally, coverage of topical political issues in a clear and accessible format provides both a twenty-first century feel and stimulating material for students to engage with.
Reflecting the backdrop of the world against which it is written - this is the Empire and war on terrorism edition in which the processes of globalization are discussed in relation to the violent practices of terrorism and counter-terrorism.
This fifth edition remains a core text for students of political geography, geopolitics, international relations and political science, as well as more broadly across human geography and the social sciences.
