9780745329239: The Geopolitics of Capitalism: New Spaces of Imperialist Rivalry

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.

Product Description:

Focusing on the post-Cold War period, The Geopolitics of Capitalism examines the ways in which capitalism creates a permanent geography of conflict through complex linkages between territory, class constellations, and international relations. Gonzalo Pozo critically reviews a wide range of geopolitical traditions, revisits their engagements with Marxist theory, and analyzes three contemporary processes that have been the cause of substantial geopolitical analysis and explanation:  the melting Arctic as the “last frontier,”  the commercial acquisition of land in the “new scramble for Africa,” and the “new Cold War” between Western powers and Russia. In each case, Pozo shows how effective the geopolitical lens can be for helping to understand the spatial dimensions of capitalist accumulation.

About the Author:
