Political Geography (2nd ed.)

Joe Painter,

Political Geography
 
 

"A very good overview. Covers the key topics well and in an accessible and engaging style."
- Dr Daniel Hammett, Department of Geography, Sheffield University


This is a revised and updated edition of a core undergraduate resource for political geography. Focusing on the social and cultural while systematically overviewing the entire discipline, Joe Painter and Alex Jeffrey explain:

  • Politics, geography, and 'political' geography: power, resources, institutions, and the history of the field
  • State formation: classical views alongside recent work on governance and governmentality
  • Welfare to workfare state: the restructuring of present state strategies
  • Democracy, citizenship and law: different models of democracy in European and global contexts
  • Identity and social movements: the relation between identity and political action
  • Nationalism and regionalism: ethnicity, national identity and "otherness"
  • Imperialism and post-colonialism: from world systems theory to post-structuralist accounts
  • Geopolitics: the political, economic, and strategic significance of geography.

Comprehensive, accessible and illustrated with real world examples, Political Geography provides undergraduates with a thorough understanding of the relationship between geography and politics.
