Customer Review

on 2 February 2012
As with his other works, notably 'Global Geopolitics' and 'Geopolitics in a Changing World', Professor Dodds writes eloquently on the major geopolitical issues and theories that define the contemporary world. As befits a "Very Short Introduction", Dodds' writing is lean and accessible, yet also intellectually deep and considered. A must for undergraduates in this field, it cuts out the jargon that so often taints academic writing. Rather than offering detailed discussion of the world's major international issues and crises (see the works cited above for this), the book emphasises the imaginative and cultural dimensions of world politics. In doing so, it provides the reader not just with new information about the geopolitical make-up of our planet, but novel ways of understanding, perhaps even ameliorating, some of its many challenges.
