Reviews

“With an engaging critical perspective on classical geopolitics, the contributions to this volume illuminate both the historical and theoretical contributions of Kjellén and his pivotal role in the development of the field as a sub-discipline of political science.” • Geoff Sloan, University of Reading

Description

Rudolf Kjellén, regularly referred to as “the father of geopolitics,” developed in the first decade of the twentieth century an analytical model for calculating the capabilities of great-power states and promoting their interests in the international arena. It was an ambitious intellectual project that sought to bring politics into the sphere of social science. Bringing together experts on Kjellén from across the disciplines, Territory, State and Nation explores the century-long international impact, analytical model, and historical theories of a figure immensely influential in his time who is curiously little-known today.

Ragnar Björk is a retired Associate Professor of History from Uppsala University and is now affiliated with Södertörn University.

Thomas Lundén is Emeritus Professor of Human Geography at Södertörn University. His latest book is Pommern - ett gränsfall i tid och rum [Pomerania - a border case in time and space], (Lund University Press 2016).
