Geopolitics and the Quest for Dominance

 
9780253018687: Geopolitics and the Quest for Dominance

History and geography delineate the operation of power, not only its range but also the capacity to plan and the ability to implement. Approaching state strategy and policy from the spatial angle, Jeremy Black argues that just as the perception of power is central to issues of power, so place, and its constraints and relationships, is partly a matter of perception, not merely map coordinates. Geopolitics, he maintains, is as much about ideas and perception as it is about the actual spatial dimensions of power. Black’s study ranges widely, examining geography and the spatial nature of state power from the 15th century to the present day. He considers the rise of British power, geopolitics and the age of Imperialism, the Nazis and World War II, and the Cold War, and he looks at the key theorists of the latter 20th century, including Henry Kissinger, Francis Fukuyama and Samuel P. Huntington, Philip Bobbitt, Niall Ferguson, and others.

Review:

"In Geopolitics and the Quest for Dominance, Black provides a lively and thought-provoking account of the subject based on an almost unsurpassable range of reference and a strong commitment to communicating the richness of the field." ―International History Review



"The book is a must read for those involved in international relations, strategic studies, geography, political and economic history, as well as government and military leaders. It is a treasure trove of thought for academics, for scholars to debate and advance." ―Military Review



"A germinal contribution to the study of geopolitics, international relations, and nation-state mechanisms for achieving predominance and hegemony in world affairs.... [It] is superlatively organized and written in eminently readable, clear, literary, and engaging prose.... Black has opened new frontiers of explanation and reference for future investigators." ―Peter Brown, Rhode Island College



"An extremely original work.... Black has his facts well in hand, and his interpretations are convincing." ―Kelly DeVries, Loyola University Maryland



"Every scholar working within the broad field of geopolitics should read this book for two reasons. First, it is a well-written and detailed historical account of the ideas and practice of (mainly) state-centric geopolitics. Second, it is a direct attack on the axioms and methods of the dominant form of contemporary geopolitical analysis." ―Journal of Historical Geography



"Solidly grounded in many decades of historical and interdisciplinary readings, [Black] considers the complex relations between power and space, and their perception, from a plurality of angles, ranging from the history of international relations and cartography to diplomatic and military history, to that of science and technology, etc." ―Journal of Interdisciplinary History
