    In Sir Halford Mackinder published his seminal paper The Geographical Pivot of History demonstrating the central position of political geography in the study of geography as a whole; a century later and political geography is still at the heart of human geography. Early human geographers often studied a nation or specific location's political development based on physical landscape attributes. Efforts to use the waters of the river for agriculture within the valley have been persistent, but of limited benefit. Learning from these successes and failures, Brazil is now experimenting with new models of public-private irrigation partnerships, which, it is hoped, will bring dynamism but also a broad-based distribution of benefits.

    Necessary as the infrastructure is, the great challenge—yet to be squarely faced—is what software allocation and management instruments will be put into place to realize the promise of a very large investment. Many of the early geographers were explicitly concerned with the relations between geography and politics. Preface to the Second Edition. We encourage contributions drawn from diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives, covering all scales of inquiry, and from scholars in all parts of the world. As a result of this rekindled interest in the field, there were a growing number of textbooks devoted to the subject. Tackling key contemporary issues such as politics and the local stateas well as more traditional topics such as state formation and international relationsthis thought-provoking book covers the range of theoretical approaches.

    From the lates onwards, political geography has undergone a renaissance, and could fairly be described as one of the most dynamic of the sub-disciplines today. Prior to World War II political geography was concerned largely with these issues of global power struggles and influencing state policy, and the above theories were taken on board by German geopoliticians see Geopolitik such as Karl Haushofer who - perhaps inadvertently - greatly influenced Nazi political theory, which was a form of politics seen to be legitimated by such 'scientific' theories. Boundaries on land and on the oceans, the role of capital cities, power relationships among nation-states, administrative systems, conflicts over resources, voter behavior, and even matters involving outer space have politico-geographical relations. The first area includes the North-South dimension of world order and the East-West split. As with much of the move towards 'Critical geographies', the arguments have drawn largely from postmodernpost structural and postcolonial theories. He argued that states were analogous to 'organisms' that needed sufficient room in which to live.
