Recent themes in political geography. A review

Auteur :
KLIOT, N.

Description :
The political geography of the 1970s shows a more interdisciplinary nature either by the adoption of new research areas from other social sciences or by the adoption of new methods from the social sciences. It is possible to identify three major theoretical foci in political geography: systems approach, territoriality and spatial behavior. It is also possible to identify four themes or directive principles: the areal-differentiation theme, the spatial theme, the man-environment theme, and the landscape theme. Six types of explanations were found in political geography: the cognitive description, the morphometric analysis, systems analysis, temporal explanation, functional-ecological and cause and effect explanations.
