Political Geography began life as an inclusive text and is now considered an exclusive text. This relates, not to changes in the book, but to changes in the discipline of Geography, now in thrall to identity scholarship. The latter has led to knowledge silos where engagement across boundaries is fraught with difficulties, often resulting in ‘straw man’ critiques. World-systems analysis has been so treated thus resulting in Political Geography being sometimes misunderstood.
