Focusing on the relationship between geography and power, this book, originally published in 1990, isolates five sources of political power - might, right, nationhood, legality and legitimacy - and demonstrtes the centrality of geography to the argument of each case. The author stresses the value of geographical expertise to political decision-making and illustrates this through the use of case-studies. His analysis of the sources of power goes deep into an understanding of politics and explores the implications for geography of political thought.
