Abstract

About the book: 'This unique book is a true encyclopedia of political geography. It gives a comprehensive outlook of its origin, objectives, history, and content. The Handbook focuses on three cornerstone themes – the state, power, gender and positionality, and offers an excellent panorama of contemporary political geography in relation with other branches of human geography and social science as a whole. The volume is a result of cooperation between a big international team of well known geographers, including scholars beyond the Anglo-American world. Brief, the Handbook clearly proves that political geography is not only about a ‘territorial aspect’ of political science or international relations. It is now a well established and relevant academic discipline having its own methods, categories and theories, taught in hundreds of universities all over the world'
