Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Agnew (geography, UCLA) looks at issues such as the re-integration of Hong Kong into China; the threatened break-up of states such as Canada, Russia, and Spain; and the proposed expansion of the powers of the EU. He shows how the dominant geopolitical imagination from the European-American experience came to be incorporated into political geography. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
