Space, Territory and the State: New Readings in International Politics

Ranabir Samaddar (Author)
Synopsis The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 freed historians and social scientists from the compulsions of a cold-war-proscribed worldview; simultaneously, it allowed those whose perceptions had been subsumed under this narrative to assert their interpretation of world history. In addressing the neglected issues of space, border and statelessness in international politics, this collection of essays contributes a much-needed ‘view from the South’. From a discussion on the possibility of Asia having its own geopolitical identity, the book moves on to the problematic of frontiers and borders. How geopolitical perceptions, frontiers and borders were manipulated to suit political and moral exigencies in Central and South Asia is presented in the form of three case studies. The book asserts that chasms created by borders, even—and especially—those between India and Pakistan, can be bridged by dialogue. By advocating the need for a historical understanding of the world today, this seamlessly edited book offers an alternative viewpoint in the field of international relations.
