Important thinkers and currents of intellectual thought from Ratzel and Mackinder to Taylor and O Tuathail are discussed in terms of their contribution to the field but also as products of their specific places and times. Case studies, examples and vignettes are woven throughout the text, vividly illustrating the concepts presented through the analysis of issues such as environmentalism, drug trafficking, and international terrorism.
The reader is left in no doubt that political geography is a vibrant field with a critical contribution to make to the understanding of politics. Making Political Geography is essential for all students of political geography.
A good book to guide students in the study of political geography. Agnew's non-state centred analysis is particularly interesting, and so are the parts devoted to national elections, and regional perspectives.
