Political geography concerns small-scale intrastate, regional and individual activities, as well as large far-reaching processes of global or international relationships. The field has developed from late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century concerns with geopolitics - the relationships between state power and territory - to a diverse range of topics engendered by new world systems and globalization.
In line with the tremendous growth in the study of political geography since the 1970s, this impressive collection charts the historical growth of the discipline, as well as the major themes of post-1970s developments.
