Thoroughly updated and revised to reflect the author's research in regions as diverse as Belarus, Finland, Moldova, Russia, the Ukraine, Kenya, Uganda and Israel. After a thorough introduction, the author examines theories about states, core areas and capitals; imperialism; colonialism and decolonization; geopolitics; international relations; and the political geography of "final frontiers" such as the oceans, Antarctica and outer space. Also examines the effects of religion, language and ethnic diversity on political geography and looks ahead to the effects of nongovernmental organizations, AIDS and international finance on the subject. Includes expanded maps, graphs, photographs and the largest bibliography on political geography available today.
