Product description


"Geographically wide-ranging but theoretically coherent, this book provides a sophisticated yet accessible introduction to the essentials of political geography... it conveys a way of thinking about the territorial organization of the world and its consequences for the world's peoples that students can carry with them long after they have forgotten the details of the examples." John Agnew, University of California Los Angeles <!--end-->

"This is a very interesting, thorough and readable treatment of the political-economic formation of the contemporary world. Cox integrates contemporary theoretical and political concerns centered on difference and identity into a political-economy framework for understanding capitalism, the state, and territoriality. Addressing processes at a variety of geographic scales, and providing numerous empirical examples, Cox fascinatingly integrates and de-mystifies material that is frequently, but artificially, treated separately." Byron Miller, Director of the Urban Studies Programme, University of Calgary

"Many aspects of the text make it worth considering for undergraduate or graduate courses, especially the excellent case studies and the inclusion of race and gender issues" Douglas Reardon, Coppin State College.

"Cox has written a carefully structured publication for students and lecturers with an interset in political geography. A wealth of historical and political science knowledge is offered." South African Geographical Journal

From the Back Cover

Developed out of the author's own substantial teaching experience, this introduction to political geography approaches its subject matter from the standpoint of political economy and the politics of difference. Unlike other similar texts, it incorporates critical approaches to human geography that have emerged over the past thirty years, such as the impact of cultural studies, those emphasizing the role of capitalist development, and work on the theory of the state.

The text covers all the central issues in the field, including identity politics, state territoriality, and the way geography makes a difference in the form of attachments and commitments to place in contexts of interdependence. Students are introduced to ideas about how the geography of politics has been interpreted and can be studied in clear and accessible language. Numerous fascinating and relevant examples are used throughout in order to sustain reader interest.
