Geopolitics in Post-Wall Europe : Security, Territory and Identity
Part One covers the general geopolitical tendencies in Europe, including conflicts between `culturism' and universalism, between national-romantic primordialism and cosmopolitan post-national identities, and between territory and escape from territory. Part Two deals with potential tensions between Russia and Europe and the possible emergence of a new European `wall' between an extended NATO on the one hand, and Russia and the CIS on the other. Part Three focuses on the borderland between Europe, Russia and the Muslim world, with particular emphasis on the former Yugoslavia as a site of conflict between new `metaphorical empires'.
