An Introduction to Political Geography continues to provide a broad-based introduction to contemporary political geography for students following undergraduate degree courses in geography and related subjects.

The nature of the state : excavating the political ecologies of the modern state by Mark Whitehead( Book )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 215 libraries worldwide
The twin categories of the state and nature collectively embody some of the most fundamental reference points around which our lives and thinking are organized. Despite their combined significance, however, the complex relationships that exist between modern states and nature remain under-theorized and are relatively unexplored. Through a detailed study of different sites, moments, and framing strategies, "The Nature of the State" challenges the ways in which geographers and social scientists approach the study of state-nature relations. The authors analyse different instances of state-nature interaction from all over the world, considering the geo-politics of resource conflicts, the operation of natural history museums, the organizational practices of environmental departments and ministries, the regulation of genetic science, and contemporary forms of state intervention within issues of climate change.; Introducing original research into the different institutional, spatial, and temporal strategies used by states to frame the natural world, this book provides a critical overview of the latest political and ecological theories and addresses a wide range of pressing socio-environmental debates
Rescaling the State : devolution and the geographies of economic governance by Mark Goodwin( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 104 libraries worldwide
"Rescaling the state provides a theoretically-informed and empirically-rich account of the process of devolution undertaken in the UK since 1997, focusing in particular on the devolution of economic governance. Using case studies from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, the book examines the purported reasons for, and the unintended consequences of, devolution. As well as comparing policy and practice across the four devolved territories, the book also explores the pitfalls and instances of good practice associated with devolution in the UK. Rescaling the state is an important text for all social scientists - particularly political scientists, sociologists, anthropologists and human geographers - interested in the devolution of power in the UK and, indeed, all instances of contemporary state restructuring. It is also a significant book for all policy-makers interested in understanding the increasing complexity of the policy landscapes of economic governance in the UK."--Publisher's website
Regional Worlds : Advancing the Geography of Regions by Martin Jones( Book )
12 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 29 libraries worldwide
A key concern in the debate and empirical research on the geography of regions is the evolution of the conceptualizations and practical uses of the idea of ' region' . This idea prioritises both the intellectual and the practical development of regional studies. This book drives the discussion further. It stresses the complex forms of agency/advocacy involved in the production and reproduction of regional spaces and space of regionalism as well as the importance of geohistory and context. The book moves beyond the territorial/relational

Reanimating regions : culture, politics and performance by James Riding( Book )
6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
Writing regions, undertaking a regional study, was once a standard form of geographic communication and critique. This was until the quantitative revolution in the middle of the previous century and more definitively the critical turn in human geography towards the end of the twentieth century. From then on writing regions as they were experienced phenomenologically, or arguing culturally, historically and politically with regions, was deemed to be old-fashioned. Yet the region is, and always will be, a central geographical concept, and thinking about regions can tell us a lot about the history of the discipline called geography. Despite taking up an identifiable place within the geographical imagination in scholarship and beyond, region remains a relatively forgotten, under-used and in part an under-theorised term. Reanimating Regions marks the continued re-invigoration of a set of disciplinary debates surrounding regions, the regional and regional geography. Across 18 chapters from international, interdisciplinary scholars, this book writes and performs region as a temporary permanence, something held stable, not fixed and absolute, at different points in time, for different purposes. There is, as this expansive volume outlines, no single reading of a region. Reanimating Regions collectively rebalances the region within geography and geographical thought. In renewing the geography of regions as not only a site of investigation but also as an analytical framework through which to write the world, what emerges is a powerful reworking of the geographic imagination

The molecule hunt : archaeology and the search for ancient DNA by Martin Jones( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"A revolution is underway in archaeology. For the first time the molecular record of past life, entombed for millennia in archaeological and geological material, has become widely accessible to science. Miraculous-seeming techniques now allow ancient remains to speak volumes about a past we thought lost." "For twenty-five years, Martin Jones's work has involved shifting the emphasis within archaeology from inert material objects to fragments of the living, breathing past. The Molecule Hunt uses Jones's perspective at the forefront of bio-archaeology to show how pioneering science is rewriting human history."--Cover
