Summary: The collection of essays in this book, a selection of the papers originally presented at the International Geographical Union (IGU) conference on Geopolitics and Globalisation in a Postmodern World held in Israel in January 1998, deals with aspects of the changing world political map. The first section focuses on the wider regional and geopolitical characteristics of global reordering, with an emphasis on two regions -- Eastern Europe and South Asia. The second section discusses the
territorial reordering which is taking place at the level of the State, as boundaries are redemarcated in line with ethno-territorial demands; as borders are transversed by movement of peoples, information and finance; and as the lines of territorial demarcation are perceived not only in terms of their fixed characteristics but as part of a process through which regional and ethnic identities continue to be formed and reformed. Each section ends with an essay which focuses on the nature of conflict resolution and the move toward poltiical stability as part of the process of territorial reordering.
