Description - Geopolitics at the End of the Twentieth Century by Nurit Kliot

The collapse of the Soviet Union and the impact of globalization have brought about changes not only to the territorial configuration sovereignty of states and their boundaries, but also to traditional notions of state, boundaries, sovereignty and social order. These essays are a selection of the papers originally presented at the International Geographical Union conference on Geopolitics and Globalization in a Post-Modern World, held in Israel in 1998. The first section focuses on the wider regional and geopolitical characteristics of global reordering, with an emphasis on Eastern Europe and South Asia. The second section discusses the territorial reordering which is taking place at the level of the state as boundaries are redemarcated in line with ethno-territoral demands; as borders are transversed by the movement of peoples, information and finance; and as the lines of territorial demarcation are perceived not only in terms of their fixed characteristics but as part of a process through which regional and ethnic identities continue to be formed and reformed. Each section ends with articles which focus on literature on geopolitics and boundaries.
