Territoriality and Conflict in an Era of Globalization, Miles Kahler and Barbara F. Walter, eds., Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2006, pp. xii, 340.
Not that long ago, amidst exuberance about the ability of globalization to erase borders, conflicts over territory seemed ready to fade into history. Now, with daily reminders from Iraq and elsewhere, it is evident that such predictions were far too optimistic. So how should we best understand the relationship between territorial conflict and globalization? This is the question that this book seeks to address.
