Political Geography: World Economy, Nation-state and Locality

Political Geography: World Economy, Nation-state and Locality

by ProfPeterTaylor (Author), Dr Colin Flint (Author)


Dramatic changes have occurred in the political world arena since the publication of the last edition of this classic text. New states have arrived on the world stage and as we approach the Millenium the geopolitical order of the 90s continues to transform. Political Geography relates these global processes to day-to-day experience, fully integrating diverse politics across geographical scales and providing an essential introduction to the growth and impact of globalization. By setting these global changes into a theoretical context within a world-systems framework, they are made understandable within the overall historical and geographical pattern of world political development. In the spirit of previous editions the text is fully updated with new illustrations and global case studies, as well as an entirely new chapter on the development of identity politics. This fourth edition remains a core text for students of political geography, international relations and political science and all social scientists adopting a world systems approach.
