Our world of increasing and varied conflicts is confusing and threatening to citizens of all countries, as they try to understand its causes and consequences. However, how and why war occurs, and peace is sustained, cannot be understood without realizing that those who make war and peace mustnegotiate a complex world political map of sovereign spaces, borders, networks of communication, access to nested geographic scales, and patterns of resource distribution. This book takes advantage of a diversity of geographic perspectives as it analyzes the political processes of war and theirspatial expression. Contributors to the volume examine particular manifestations of war in light of nationalism, religion, gender identities, state ideology, border formation, genocide, spatial rhetoric, terrorism, and a variety of resource conflicts. The final section on the geography of peace covers peace movements,diplomacy, the expansion of NATO, and the geography of post-war reconstruction. Case studies of numerous conflicts include Israel and Palestine, Afghanistan, Northern Ireland, Bosnia-Herzogovina, West Africa, and the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Editorial Reviews

"This volume explores the permanent wars and fledgling peace process of the new millennium from traditional, spatial-analytic, and critical perspectives. The collection reaffirms, across a range of engaging essays, how resource foundations, territorial practices, and spatial discourses areactive ingredients in the making of war and peace in the twentieth century."--Gerard Toal, Professor, Government and International Affairs, Virginia Tech University
