9780582327900: Territory:The Claiming of Space: Tthe Claiming of Space (Insights into Human Geography)
Reseña del editor:

  Territoryprovides a comprehensive introduction to theories of territoriality and the geographical outcomes of territorial control.  It explores both macro-scale territoriality (e.g. the emergence of nations and state formation) and micro-scale territoriality (e.g. the 'designation' of particular spaces in urban areas or domestic contexts).
Politics and political relationships underpin the world we live in. From a geographical perspective, the most obvious manifestation of this is the division of the Earth's surface into political units (states and sub-state divisions). There are also less explicit forms of territorial division which occur in more micro-scale contexts. Whether explicit or implicit, control over territory is a key political motivating force. Competing territory claims are a major source of conflict. The processes of control and the contestation over particular territory are thus key elements in what is known as political geography.

Contraportada:

Politics and political relationships underpin the world we live in. From a geographical perspective, the most obvious manifestation of this is the division of the earth's surface into political-territorial units known as states. There are also less explicit forms of territorialization which occur in more micro-scale contexts. In particular socio-political contexts, groups of people may be excluded from certain places. This book considers the division of space into territories and suggests that the resulting spatial patterns can be seen as consequences of power relationships. The exercise of territorial control often leads to conflict and this volume explores the construction of territories and their contestation using a range of examples drawn from various spatial scales and many different countries. The book provides an introduction to theories of territoriality and the outcomes of territorial control and resistance. It ranges in coverage from conflicts over national territory to divisions of space based around class, gender and race. Throughout the book there is an emphasis on the underlying processes associated with the use of territorial strategies as a means of asserting or resisting power. In doing so it raises important questions relating to place, culture and identity.
Each chapter contains boxed case studies, together with illustrations and a guide to further reading.
