Description - Geopolitics in Post-Wall Europe by Ola Tunander
This text deciphers and explains the geopolitics of Europe. The first part deals with the general geopolitical tendencies in Europe, as well as the conflicting tendencies between culturism and universalism, between national-romantic ethnic primordialism and cosmopolitan post-national identities, between territory and escape from territory. The second part deals with potential tensions between Russia and Europe - will a stand-off develop or will Russia and the CIS be reincorporated into Europe? The third part focuses on the borderland - between "Europe" and Russia and between "Europe" and the Muslim world - in particular on former Yugoslavia as the "battle zone" between the new "metaphorical empires". The emphasis of this book is on the relation between politics, culture and territory, and on the major geopolitical and cultural shifts which affect the relation between security, identity and territory.
