An introduction to political geography : space, place and politics by Martin Jones( Book )
27 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 350 libraries worldwide
An Introduction to Political Geography provides a broad-based introduction to how power interacts with space; how place influences political identities; and how policy creates and remoulds territory. By pushing back the boundaries of what we conventionally understand as political geography, the book emphasizes the interactions between power, politics and policy, space, place and territory in different geographical contexts. -- Publisher description

The complex relationships between the state and nature remain under-theorized and relatively unexplored. Combining original research and theoretical insights The Nature of the State challenges the ways in which social scientists approach questions of socio-environmental power and offers new insights into the history of state-nature relations. - ;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
Rescaling the State : devolution and the geographies of economic governance by Mark Goodwin( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 96 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 )
6 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 10 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
State/space : a reader by Neil Brenner( Book )
6 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
In the face of these massive and still-ongoing transformations, it can be plausibly claimed that the consolidation of new state spaces represents one of the most significant institutional expressions of contemporary processes of global capitalist restructuring. The major focus of this reader is the restructuring of state spatiality in the contemporary period of global capitalism. In pursuing this issue, the volume contributes to contemporary debates on the production of scale by suggesting that scalar realignments must be distinguished from other geographical dimensions of capitalist restructuring. This volume demonstrates that processes of state re-scaling represent merely one dimension of an extraordinarily multifaceted reconfiguration of state spatiality in the contemporary period

The Nature of the State Excavating the Political Ecologies of the Modern State. Oxford Geographical and Environmental Studies ( file )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 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
