Synopsis

Contemporary human geography provides valuable insights into the political, social or cultural transformations of the world. The Chapters of Modern Geographical Thought is a compilation of original, state-of-the-art essays written by recognized scholars, covering a wide range of topics from human geography, always paying tribute to the multidisciplinary nature of the field. This book will provide students with penetrating analyses of seven fields, including critical geopolitics of film and affect, the political economy of the environment, ethnic problems in the Caucasus, the US and Mexico relations, new social movements in Southern Africa or identity politics and the legal recognition of the Silesian minority in Poland. All the essays emphasize the interconnectedness of a globalized world. The book assumes that every piece of knowledge we gain, has to be understood and interpreted in the context of cultural and symbolic phenomena with their own histories and localized in specific spaces/places. Moreover, the authors stress the importance of geography enabling/disabling the formation and representation of identities and their mutual contestation.
