Why and How Does Context ‘Make’ Political Geography?
The chapters and entries in the recent wave of handbooks and encyclopaedias focussing on political geography usually suggest ways in which a sub-topic fits into the broader narrative of the sub-discipline. In contrast, Making Political Geography creates the broader narrative and enables scholars to see where their particular foci fit in. The book does this very well and makes a valuable contri- bution, but, in the spirit of a forum that encourages critique, I will offer some concerns about the purpose and organizing framework of the book.
