Condemned as an intellectul poison by the late American geographer Richard Hartshbornem geopolitics has confounded its critics. Today it remains a popular and important intellectul field despite the persistent allegations that geopolitics helped to legitimate Hitler's policies of spatial expansionism and the domination of place. Using insights from critical geopolitics and cultural history, the contributoirs focus on how geopolitics has been created, negotiated and contested within a variety of intellectual and popular contexts. Geopolitical Traditions argues that geopolitics has to take responsibility for the past whilst at the same time reconceptualising geopolitics in a manner which accounts for the dramatic changes in the late twentieth century. The book is divided into three sections: firstly Rehtinking Geopolitical Histories concentrates on how geopolitical conversations between European scholars and the wider world unfolded; secondly Geopolitics, Nationa and Spirituality considers how geopolitical writings have been strongly influenced by religions, iconography adn doctrine with examples drawn from Catholicicsm, Judaism and Hinduism; and thirdly Reclaiming and Refocusing Geopolitics contemplates how geopolitics has been reformulated in the post-war period with illustrations from France and the United States. Geopolitical Traditions brings together scholars working in a variety of disciplines and locations in order to explore a hundred years of geopolitical thought.

„Mit diesem imposanten Werk liegt eine überzeugende Neuinterpretation des Wirkens von Karl Haushofer vor: Der globale Ansatz seiner Theorien wird durch die Fokussierung auf Japan und die dortige Rezeption von Haushofers Gedankenwelt erstmals deutlich herausgearbeitet. Haushofer wird überzeugend als theoretischer Wegbereiter nationalsozialistischer Eurasienpolitik beschrieben, der das Drehbuch zum ‚Dreimächtepakt’ verfasste, und mit seinen Werken in Japan sogar auf die Kriegsplanung einwirkte. Das ausgebreitete Detailwissen ist beeindruckend, die Interpretation neu und auch die sprachliche Umsetzung geglückt.“ Bernd Martin (Historiker, Freiburg) im Januar 2013 „Besonders beachtenswert ist, mit welchem Einfühlungsvermögen und welcher Kenntnis der Autor, ein Neuzeithistoriker, auch die geographische Fachliteratur berücksichtigt und in den Forschungskontext einordnet. Damit handelt es sich um eine fachliche Grenzen überschreitende, fundierte sowie äußerst anregende und anspruchsvolle Arbeit.“ Jörg Stadelbauer (Geograph, Freiburg – Yangon/Myanmar) im Februar 2013 „Auf Grund der vorliegenden Darstellung ist die raumpolitische Beeinflussung der NSDAP durch Karl Haushofer nicht mehr zu bestreiten. Im Unterschied zur nationalsozialistischen Ideologie ist für Haushofer der Raum allerdings keine rassisch bestimmte Größe. Vor uns liegt eine Biographie, wie sie umfänglicher und einfühlsamer bezüglich des ‚Titelhelden’ inmitten zweier Gesellschaften wohl kaum verfasst werden kann. Der Autor weist Karl Haushofer den ihm zustehenden Platz in der modernen Geistesgeschichte Deutschlands und Japans zu.“ Hans-Erich Volkmann (Militärhistoriker, Leiter der Forschungsabteilung des MGFA Potsdam, 1994 –2003) im Februar 2013

Geopolitical conditions influence all strategic behaviour - even when cooperation among different kinds of military power is expected as the norm, action has to be planned and executed in specific physical environments. The geographical world cannot be avoided, and it happens to be 'organized' into land, sea, air and space - and possibly the electromagnetic spectrum including 'cyberspace'. Although the meaning of geography for strategy is a perpetual historical theme, explicit theory on the subject is only one hundred years old. Ideas about the implication of geographical, especially spatial, relationships for political power - which is to say 'geopolitics'- flourished early in the twentieth century. Divided into theory and practice sections, this volume covers the big names such as Mackinder, Mahan and Haushofer, as well as looking back at the vital influence of weather and geography on naval power in the long age of sail (sixteenth to nineteenth centuries). It also looks forward to the consequences of the revival of geopolitics in post-Soviet Russia and the new space-based field of "astropolitics".

Das in fünf Auflagen erschienene bio-bibliographische Handbuch Armin Mohlers ist längst ein Klassiker und unverzichtbares Hilfsmittel für jeden, der sich mit der Geschichte der rechten und konservativen geistesgeschichtlichen Strömungen während der Weimarer Republik beschäftigt. Wie wichtig dieses Buch für die Wissenschaft geworden ist, mag sich auch aus der Tatsache ergeben, dass der Begriff "Konservative Revolution" selbst, den Mohler für diese Strömungen geprägt hat, inzwischen zum sprachlichen Allgemeingut geworden ist. Der Hamburger Soziologe Stefan Breuer hat diese Begriffsbildung Mohlers "eine der erfolgreichsten Schöpfungen der neueren Ideengeschichtsschreibung" genannt. Für die sechste Auflage wurde das Standardwerk von einem der profundesten Kennern der Materie, Karlheinz Weissmann, überarbeitet, in dessen Hände Mohler die Fortführung seines Werkes vor seinem Tod legte. Ohne den bisherigen Duktus des Buches zu ändern, hat Weissmann eine Fülle von neuen wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen in diese Neuauflage einfliessen lassen. Über 350 Personen werden in Kurzbiographie mit ausführlicher Bibliographie vorgestellt, darunter Carl Schmitt, Ernst Jünger, Oswald Spengler, Thomas Mann, Edgar Julius Jung, Ludwig Klages, Hans Zehrer und der Tat-Kreis, Othmar Spann, Hans Freier, Stefan George, Hermann Löns, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Gottfried Benn, Martin Niemöller, Ernst Niekisch u. a.

Concern about the size of the world's population did not begin with the "population bomb" in 1968. It arose in the aftermath of World War I and was understood as an issue with far-reaching ecological, agricultural, economic, and geopolitical consequences. The world population problem concerned the fertility of soil as much as the fertility of women, always involving both "earth" and "life." Global Population traces the idea of a world population problem as it evolved from the 1920s through the 1960s. The growth and distribution of the human population over the planet's surface came deeply to shape the characterization of "civilizations" with different standards of living. It forged the very ideas of development, demographically defined three worlds, and, for some, an aspirational "one world." Drawing on international conference transcripts and personal and organizational archives, this book reconstructs the twentieth-century population problem in terms of migration, colonial expansion, globalization, and world food plans. Population was a problem in which international relations and intimate relations were one. Global Population ultimately shows how a geopolitical problem about sovereignty over land morphed into a biopolitical solution, entailing sovereignty over one's person.

"Some 120 participants attended the inaugural Congress of the Asian Political and International Studies Association (APISA) in Singapore in November 2003. Asians from universities and institutes in many countries accounted for about 70 percent of the participants. The First Congress had been two years in the making. In November 2001, 30 academics from research institutes, think tanks, and universities introduced the idea of launching an Asian-based academic organization dedicated to the advancement of political and international studies. It was the general consensus of the meeting that Asian scholars had been marginalized from the decision-making processes of the Western-based associations of a similar nature. Asian schools of thought had been stifled as a consequence of the American hegemony in the social sciences, and that the state of Asian studies in general was underdeveloped. In the light of these concerns, the APISA was established. Drawn from academia and think tanks from across Asia and the Pacific, the political and security specialists, sociologists, historians, and economists exchanged ideas and charted new intellectual terrain on the theme: ""Asia in the New Millennium: Development, Democracy, and Security."" The keynote speaker at the Congress was Dr. Surin Pituswan, former Foreign Minister of Thailand and Member of the Commission for Human Security, who focused on the need to pursue prominence in Asian scholarship. Panels at the APISA Congress transcended disciplinary contours, national and regional boundaries, and historical confines. The panels' themes ranged from globalization, identity and community in Asia to electronic government and theory and modernity. Offering more regional lenses were panels that discussed understanding and explaining Asia-Pacific security and the welfare state in Southeast Asia, China and her neighbors."

This book was born from the editor's conviction that a wide set of contributors should provide the economic and corporate sectors with guidelines, developed from rigorous research and case studies, to analyse those adjustments made necessary through international terrorism, as known since September 11th 2001. It argues that corporate asset protection and accurate business risk assessment is vital to the longevity, and resilience of business. the volume reveals how the pre-9/11-era of contemporary economic history gave birth to a nexus of a) globalisation b) increased systemic vulnerability and complexity and c) the transitions of terrorism. As a result, the post-9/11-era is one which should incorporate risk analysis audits on a regular basis, political and geopolitical risk research, the use of quantitative risk assessment and qualitative risk analysis to implement risk strategy planning, its management and appropriate risk transfer considerations.
