Rethinking geopolitics by Gerard Toal( )

28 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cold War geopolitics may be dead but struggles over space and power are more important than ever in a world of globalizing economies and instantaneous information. Contributors to this collection use insights from contemporary cultural theory to address questions of political identity and popular culture, state violence and genocide, militarism, gender and resistance, cyberwar and mass media. By exploring how popular cultural assumptions about geography and politics constitute the debate about contemporary violence and political economy, Rethinking Geopolitics argues that concept of geopolitics needs to be reconceptualized as the twenty-first century approaches--Publisher's Description

An unruly world? : globalization, governance, and geography by Andrew Herod( )

18 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Unruly World? examines how fast transnational capitalism is re-making the rules of the game throughout the world of the late twentieth century. Ranging in focus from analyses of "soft capitalism" and the rhetoric of speed in US political discourse, to the post-Cold War organizational drives of international trade unions, and the efforts of citizen groups to challenge trade and financial regimes, the chapters analyse the diverse conundrums thrown up by a seemingly unruly globalization. Whereas contemporary literature appears to argue that the process of globalization is leading to an increasingly uncontrollable world, this book suggests that this is not, however, a world bereft of rules and rulers. Indeed the rules governing the global economy are today more strictly enforced by intellectual organization and the rhetoric of neoliberalism than ever before

Bosnia remade : ethnic cleansing and its reversal by Gerard Toal( Book )

16 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bosnia Remade is an authoritative account of ethnic cleansing and its partial undoing from the onset of the 1990's Bosnian wars up through the present. Gerard Toal and Carl Dahlman combine a bird's eye view of the entire ward from onset to aftermath with a microlevel account of three towns that underwent ethnic cleansing and-later-the return of refugees. There have been two major attempts to remake the entire geography of Bosnia since 1991. In the First instance, ascendant ethnonationalist forces tried to eradicate the mixed ethnic geographies of Bosnia's towns, villages, and communities. These forces devastated tens of thousands of homes and lives, but they failed to destroy Bosnia-Herzegovina as a polity. In the second attempt, which followed the war, the international community, in league with Bosnian officials, endeavored to reverse the demographic and other consequences of this ethnic cleansing. While progress has been uneven, this latter effort has transformed the ethnic demography of Bosnia and moved the nation beyond its recent segregationist past. --Book Jacket
Near abroad : Putin, the West and the contest over Ukraine and the Caucasus by Gerard Toal( Book )

15 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" Vladimir Putin's intervention into the Georgia/South Ossetia conflict in summer 2008 was quickly recognized by Western critics as an attempt by Russia to increase its presence and power in the "near abroad", or the independent states of the former Soviet Union that Russia still regards as its wards. Though the global economic recession that began in 2008 moved the incident to the back of the world's mind, Russia surged to the forefront again six years later when they invaded the heavily Russian Crimea in Ukraine and annexed it. In contrast to the earlier Georgia episode, this new conflict has generated a crisis of global proportions, forcing European countries to rethink their relationship with Russia and their reliance on it for energy supplies, as Russia was now squeezing natural gas from what is technically Ukraine. In Near Abroad, the eminent political geographer Gerard Toal analyzes Russia's recent offensive actions in the near abroad, focusing in particular on the ways in which both the West and Russia have relied on Cold War-era rhetorical and emotional tropes that distort as much as they clarify. In response to Russian aggression, US critics quickly turned to tried-and-true concepts like "spheres of influence" to condemn the Kremlin. Russia in turn has brought back its long tradition of criticizing western liberalism and degeneracy to grandly rationalize its behavior in what are essentially local border skirmishes. It is this tendency to resort to the frames of earlier eras that has led the conflicts to "jump scales," moving from the regional to the global level in short order. The ambiguities and contradictions that result when nations marshal traditional geopolitical arguments-rooted in geography, territory, and old understandings of distance-further contributes to the escalation of these conflicts. Indeed, Russia's belligerence toward Georgia stemmed from concern about its possible entry into NATO, an organization of states thousands of miles away. American hawks also strained credulity by portraying Georgia as a nearby ally in need of assistance. Similarly, the threat of NATO to the Ukraine looms large in the Kremlin's thinking, and many Ukrainians themselves self-identify with the West despite their location in Eastern Europe. "

Divided Space, Divided Attitudes? Comparing the Republics of Moldova and Pridnestrovie (Transnistria) Using Simultaneous Surveys by John V O'Loughlin( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Has 20)years of separation between the Republics of Moldova and Pridnestrovie (Transnistria, PMR) generated a division in attitudes and beliefs in the two populations? Using near-simultaneous social scientific surveys from the summer of 2010 in the two republics, we measured four localized geopolitical divides: the local economies, historical memories, political legitimacies, and geopolitical orientations. Our findings challenge the notion that Moldova's territorial disunion has produced separate experiential and attitudinal worlds. Complicating geopolitical commentary that locates an East-West fault-line running through Moldova, we find that separateness has not created an attitudinal chasm, but prospects of ending the separation are not supported by the surveys
