'Jeppe Strandsbjerg offers a powerful challenge to International Relations, arguing that it needs to take far better account of the relations between state, space and territory, both historically and in the present moment. From discussions of Latour, to Danish cartographic practice in the sixteenth century, to debates about globalisation and the boundaries between disciplines, this is a broad-ranging and illuminating account that should be widely read.' - Stuart Elden, Professor of Political Geography, Durham University, UK
'For those IR students who do not normally even consider cartography as part of the tools of governance, this is a useful corrective to this oversight, and one that should lead them to stop and think about the taken for granted category of the state in contemporary political analysis.' - Simon Dalby, Carleton University, Canada
'A most provocative work and a worthy addition to the literature on the geopolitical history of cartography' - James R. Akerman, Imago Mundi, The International Journal for the History of Cartography
Globalization and changes to statehood challenge our understanding of space and territory. This book argues that we must understand that both the modern state and globalisation are based on a cartographic reality of space. In consequence, claims that globalization represents a spatial challenge to state territory are deeply problematic.
