Every new international crisis revives the spectre of geopolitics: but does this ubiquitous term really help us make sense of a system in which exploitation and oppression are central to war and interstate competition?
Concentrating on the post-Cold War period, The Geopolitics of Capitalism examines the way in which capitalism is permanently creating a geography of conflict in its own image, through complex linkages between territory, class constellations and international relations. The book critically reviews a wide range of geopolitical traditions, revisits the engagement between them and Marxist theory and analyses three contemporary processes which have attracted all manner of geopolitical tropes and explanations. For example, the melting Arctic as a ‘last frontier’; commercial land acquisition as a ‘new scramble for Africa’ and the ‘new Cold War’ between the US-led Western powers and Russia.
Taking distance from both the classical canon and the more recent critical turn, Gonzalo Pozo argues that geopolitics, understood as a spatial dimension of capitalist accumulation, remains a useful lens through which to understand events and transformations around us.
The Geopolitics of Capitalism links contemporary inter-state rivalry and cooperation to the spatial processes of global capitalism, recasting the notion of geopolitics as a territorial manifestation of accumulation.
Concentrating on the post-Cold War period, Gonzalo Pozo examines the way in which the capitalist mode of production creates its own spaces of state conflict. The book critically reviews a wide range of geopolitical traditions and revisits key notions of borders and territory, offering an analysis of the contemporary forms of territorial configuration.
The book's theoretical and empirical range makes it an important contribution to the Marxist literature on imperialism and an excellent critical introduction for students of international politics and political geography.
