Squire and Jackman have produced the fresh take on political geography for which undergraduates have been waiting. Political geography is more than ever in the news, and students looking for the conceptual tools to make sense of it need look no further: from decolonisation movements, to our relationships to technology and the digital, to the contestation of popular culture, this book has it all. And crucially, it has hope – something that can be in short supply these days.
This impressive textbook makes important and complex ideas understandable and interesting. By presenting pressing topics of violence and inequality alongside hopeful resources for peaceful and sustainable futures it strikes the delicate balance between political urgency and pastoral sensitivity.
This is the must-read textbook for any student studying Political Geography. Exploring how power, politics and space shape our complex world, this cutting-edge textbook takes geopolitics to unexpected and exciting places. Through an exciting range of case studies, Political Geography clearly guides students through the key themes, ideas and concepts that underpin the subdiscipline.
