Riassunto: A Road Map to War advances the study of geopolitics significantly and offers a splendid example of cumulative and innovative research from an interdisciplinary perspective. (John O'Louglin)
An unusually coherent set of essays. A Road Map to War succeeds admirably in its purpose of explaining the role that territory plays in the conceptualization, escalation, recurrence, resolution, and future of militarized conflict. (Harvey Starr)
Territorial concerns are more often than not a fundamental component of international conflict. History is replete with examples, from negotiations about disputed borders to overt warfare over areas rich with natural resources. Indeed, the role of territorial issues in conflict between states is largely assumed. However, there has been little scholarship devoted specifically to the crucial role of territoriality in international conflict.
A Road Map to War: Territorial Dimensions of International Conflict considers the role of territory in the initiation, evolution, escalation, and resolution of interstate conflict and encompasses much of the cutting-edge research in the area of geography and international conflict. Topics vary from an examination of international law in territorial conflicts to an empirical analysis of the fairness of the Camp David accords, but all the essays address a coherent theme: that conflicts involving a significant territorial component are more dangerous than other disputes, but with the good news that such conflicts can be resolved peacefully.
Scholars of international conflict, peace research, and geography will find this book significant for the study and practice of international relations.
Sinossi: A collection of essays which examine the crucial role of territory in the initiation, evolution, escalation and resolution of interstate and international conflict. It contains 2 maps and 29 tables and is edited by the editor of THE DYNAMICS OF ENDURING RIVALRIES.
