'A thorough and absorbing tour of the sub-discipline... An essential acquisition for any scholar or teacher interested in geographical perspectives on political process, this Handbook is sure to become the major reference work in anglophone political geography' - Sallie Marston, University of Arizona
'This unique book is a true encyclopedia of political geography... The volume is a result of cooperation between a big international team of well known geographers, including scholars beyond the Anglo-American world' - Vladimir Kolossov, Institute of Geography of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, and Vice President of the International Geographical Union
'This unique book is a true encyclopaedia of political geography. It gives a comprehensive outlook of its origin, objectives, history, and content. The Handbook focuses on three cornerstone themes - the state, power, gender and positionality, and offers an excellent panorama of contemporary political geography in relation with other branches of human geography and social science as a whole. The volume is a result of cooperation between a big international team of well known geographers, including scholars beyond the Anglo-American world. Brief, the Handbook clearly proves that political geography is not only about a 'territorial aspect' of political science or international relations"."It is now a well established and relevant academic discipline having its own methods, categories and theories, taught in hundreds of universities all over the world' - Vladimir Kolossov, Head, Center of Geopolitical Studies at the Institute of Geography of the Russian Academy of Sciences; Chair (1996-2004), International Geographical Union Commission on Political Geography; Vice-President (since 2006) of the International Geographical Union.'Political geography is on the move because of dramatic changes experienced both by societies and social sciences. This book is an excellent initiation to this emerging field. The authors, fortunately, did not forget either to capitalise what has be done, sometimes brilliantly, in the last decades' - Jacques Levy, Geographer, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne. Political Geography is a core subdiscipline of Human Geography, the "Handbook of Political Geography" will provide a highly contextualised and systematic overview of the latest thinking and research.Edited by key scholars, with international contributions from acknowledged authorities on the relevant research, the "Handbook of Political Geography" is divided into six sections: Scope and Development of Political Geography - key debates; the geography of knowledge; conceptualisations of power; and conceptualisations of scale, Geographies of the State - state theory; territory and central local relations; legal and judicial geographies; borders; and states and nature, Participation and representation - citizenship; space; electoral geography; place; media public space; and social movements, Political Geographies of Difference - class; nationalism; gender, sexuality; and culture, Geography Policy and Governance - regulation; welfare; urban space; planning, environment, and Global Political Geographies - geographies of imperialism; post-colonialism; globalization; environmental politics; international relations; war; and migration."The Handbook of Political Geography" will be the standard work, widely used and highly-cited, by all scholars with an interest in politics and space.
