The return of geopolitics : a global quest for the right side of history
It wasn´t so long ago that a notion gained currency suggesting we had reached the end of history, that humanity´s sociocultural evolution had advanced to a point beyond which it could not develop much further. A quarter of a century later, this optimism seems to have vanished. Instead, we are witnessing the return of geopolitics. In this volume, leading scholars chart how we arrived where we are today and where we might be going next.
