The SAGE Handbook of Political Geography provides a highly contextualised and systematic overview of the latest thinking and research in the field. Edited by key scholars, with international contributions from acknowledged authorities on the relevant research, the Handbook is divided into six sections:

  • Scope and Development of Political Geography: the geography of knowledge, conceptualisations of power and scale.
  • Geographies of the State: state theory, territory and central local relations, legal geographies, borders.
  • Participation and representation: citizenship, electoral geography, media public space and social movements.
  • Political Geographies of Difference: class, nationalism, gender, sexuality and culture.
  • Geography Policy and Governance: regulation, welfare, urban space, and planning.
  • Global Political Geographies: imperialism, post-colonialism, globalization, environmental politics, IR, war and migration.

The SAGE Handbook of Political Geography is essential reading for upper level students and scholars with an interest in politics and space.
