Overview

An excellent examination of how the collapse of the Soviet Union and the impact of globalization have brought about changes not only to the territorial configuration sovereignty of states and their boundaries, but also to traditional notions of state, boundaries, sovereignty and social order


These essays focus on the key regional and geopolitical characteristics of this global reordering, with an emphasis on Eastern Europe and South Asia. They discuss the territorial reordering which is taking place at the level of the state as boundaries are redemarcated in line with ethno-territoral demands; as borders are transversed by the movement of peoples, information and finance; and as the lines of territorial demarcation are perceived not only in terms of their fixed characteristics but as part of a process through which regional and ethnic identities continue to be formed and reformed. Each section ends with articles which focus on literature on geopolitics and boundaries. This is an invaluable addition to our understanding of contemporary world affairs.

A selection of 13 papers from a January 1998 conference in Israel look at the regional and geopolitical characteristics of global reordering, emphasizing the eastern European and southern Asian regions, and the territorial reordering at the level of the state. Among the topics are geopolitical games on post-Cold War eastern Europe, the future of new regionalism in the Asia Pacific, African boundaries and their interpreters, and borders in a borderless world.
