The fall of the Berlin Wall symbolized a dramatic turning point in the history of European politics and security. Geopolitics in Post-Wall Europe highlights the new relations between politics, culture and territory. It analyzes the major geopolitical shifts in the connection between security 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'.

Recensioner i media

`The analyses are wide-ranging, anti-determinist and sensitive to culture and accident. None crudely computes power. The book is a product of passion and commitment... This makes the essays refreshing, engaging and instructive in a way unattainable by pretended objectivity' - International Affairs

`This volume is an ambitious attempt to rethink the ways in which Europe is portrayed in the discipline of International Relations... The project offers some interesting contemporary material, and some excellent individual chapters.... The contemporary examples and its eschewal of a statist framework of analysis make the book worth our attention' - Millennium - Journal of International Studies
