More About This Book

Overview

Geographies of Global Change gathers a diverse and informative selection of readings on some of the world's most complex trouble spots. Using the themes of globalization, national identity, and conflict as a foundation, the book argues for geography's continued relevance in understanding contemporary politics. The readings shed light on the renewed rivalry between Russia and the United States in post-Soviet Central Asia; the origins, outcomes, and prospects for America's military engagements in Afghanistan and the Middle East; and the dynamics of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, among other topics.

The book is an excellent teaching tool for introductory courses in human geography, international relations, and global studies. The readings are varied, with some providing necessary background to a particular geographic region, while others update these situations by focusing on the issues of the most pressing relevance today. It offers a comprehensive set of teaching instruments, including discussion questions, to supplement the readings. Students will gain a valuable understanding of the where, what, and why of the contemporary geography of conflict.

Dr. John O'Loughlin is College Professor of Distinction at the University of Colorado - Boulder, where he has taught since 1988.

Dr. O'Loughlin has served as editor of the journal Political Geography since its beginning in 1982.
