Description

Geopolitics identifies and scrutinizes the central features of geopolitics from the sixteenth century to the present. The book focuses on five key concepts of the modern geopolitical imagination:

* Visualising the world as a whole

* The definition of geographical areas as 'advanced' or 'primitive'

* The notion of the state being the highest form of political organization

* The pursuit of primacy by competing states

* The necessity for hierarchy.
