Introduction to Geopolitics: Tensions, Conflicts and Resolutions by Dr. Colin Flint
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


An Introduction to Geopolitics highlights in a concise, accessible manner how geographic factors are important in determining whether tensions become conflicts and whether resolutions are just and long lasting or not. The result is an understanding of geopolitics as the way geography and its representation facilitates the exercise of power and resistance towards it. The process and feedback model of geopolitical tension, conflict and resolution structures the book. For each of these three stages four geographic concepts will be discussed: scale of governance; changing places and spaces; networks versus states and resources. Each will be illustrated with a case study. Dialogue boxes will also be used to illuminate the many sides to a conflict.
