Description

Rethinking Geopolitics argues that the concept of geopolitics needs to be conceptualised anew as the twenty-first century approaches.

Challenging conventional geopolitical assumptions, contributors explore:

* theories of post-modern geopolitics

* historical formulations of states and cold wars

* the geopolitics of the Holocaust

* the gendered dimension of Kurdish insurgency

* the cold war world

* political cartoons concerning Bosnia

* Time magazine representations of the Persian Gulf

* the Zapatistas and the Chiapas revolt

* the new cyber politics

* conflict simulations in the US military

* the emergence of a new geopolitics of global security.

Exploring how popular cultural assumptions about geography and politics constitute the discourses of contemporary violence and political economy, Rethinking Geopolitics shows that we must rethink the struggle for knowledge, space and power.
