|About the Book|
This book shows how the new geopolitics links to the way in which geography and international relations have intertwined in the past. Using recent developments in GIS technology as well as traditional theories and methods, Harvey Starr explores themes of spatiality and territoriality as they connect to international affairs. He also examines geopolitical dynamics beyond borders in a world now buffeted by nonstate actors and subject to intergovernmental institutions and norms. On Geopolitics is a brilliant synthesis of Starr s long work on conflict and cooperation, alliances, opportunity, and willingness, all within a geographic framework. At the same time, Starr points the way toward new tools and techniques for the study of globalization and world politics.
