Over the last two decades, critical geopolitics has become a prominent field in human geography. It has developed to encompass topics associated with popular culture, everyday life, architecture and urban form as well as the more familiar issues of security, international relations and global power projection. Critical geopolitics takes inspiration from studies of governmentality and biopolitics, gender and sexuality, political economy and development, postcolonialism, as well as the study of emotion and affect. Methodologically, it continues to employ discourse analysis and is engaging with ethnography and participatory research methods. This rich field continues to develop new ways of analysing geopolitics. This series provides an opportunity for early career researchers as well as established scholars to publish theoretically informed monographs and edited volumes that engage with critical geopolitics and related areas such as international relations theory and security studies. With an emphasis on accessible writing, the books in the series will appeal to wider audiences including journalists, policy communities and civil society organizations with interests in international affairs and practices of security, identity, and power.
