This authoritative Handbook presents a comprehensive analysis of the spatial transformation of the state; a pivotal process of globalization. It explores the state as an ongoing project that is always changing, illuminating the new spaces of geopolitics that arise from these political, social, cultural, and environmental negotiations.

Drawing together a diverse set of expert contributors, this book showcases compelling scholarship on the changing geographies of the state. Chapters examine the state from a range of theoretical angles and analyse a variety of relevant themes, including feminist geographies, the relationship between state and environment, urbanization, security geographies, nation-building, and geographical political economies. The book considers the state as spatial in both form and outlook, illustrating how it occupies existing and constantly-changing political geographic conditions, and how it is maintained by the practices of categorizing and managing territory.

Taking a multidisciplinary approach, this Handbook will be a valuable resource for academics and students across a range of subjects, including human geography, international relations, political science, spatial planning, and urban studies. The key case studies explored will also provide valuable examples for scholars and policy-makers seeking a better understanding of the broad scope of geopolitics in a globalizing world.
Critical Acclaim
‘This Handbook introduces readers to key ideas and issues related to geography and state power in the 21st century. A compelling collection, it investigates the production and transformation of the state, focusing on the spatial practices and expressions of political power over time. The volume brings together an extraordinary group of contributors, presenting researchers and students with a rich compendium of expert knowledge on the state as a form of social and political organisation that remains vital to understand and interrogate in these turbulent times.’
– Katharyne Mitchell, University of California, Santa Cruz, US
