Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this book, Mark R. Polelle presents an overview of the evolution of geopolitical thought in three national contexts — the United States, Britain, and Germany — from 1870 to the present. Polelle examines in particular the rise of the defense intellectual and shows how the measurement of national power has changed. Geopolitics early in the century assumed the centrality of space and territory, but we close the century with despacialized concerns over geo-economic conflicts (e.g., that between Japan and the United States). Polelle explains this shift by putting it into historical context. His use of both historical and geographical methods makes Raising Cartographic Consciousness a valuable book for historians, geographers, and political scientists.

Book News Annotation:

Polelle (history, U. of Findlay, Ohio) explores the origins and effects of the field Geopolitics during the period 1870-1945 by focusing on the careers of three geographers—British, German, and American. He argues that the geopolitical era was shaped by the rise and fall of formal European imperialism; Germany's rise as a threat to the old balance-of-power system in Europe; and changes in the perception of time and space brought about by scientific discovery, technological change, and capitalist expansion. These, he continues, made possible a civilian militarist tradition that his subjects helped found.
