Book Description

This book charts the incidence of territorial changes and military conflicts from 1816 to 1980. Using statistical and descriptive analysis, the authors attempt to answer three related sets of questions:

* When does military conflict accompany the process of national independence?

* When do states fight over territorial changes and when are such transactions completed peacefully?

* How do territorial changes affect future military conflict between the states involved in the exchange?


`... this theoretical analysis of the correlation of conflict and territorial change is most timely. The authors provide a general and theoretical overview and a good deal of interesting data, - Jrnl of Strategic Studies

`The book is well-structured and clearly written. Moreover, it is successful in bridging the broad gap between geography and politics. It is (regretfully) worth mentioning that, as far as I know, they are the first scholars in international relations who fully integrate geographical elements in their study, thus making use of works written by political geographers ... This book is a must, at least, for each political geographer with an interest in international relations.' - Tijdschrift voor Economische en Sociale Geografie
