Territory Beyond Terra

Territory Beyond Terra
by Kimberley Peters and Philip Steinberg
English | 2018 | ISBN: 1786600110 | 303 Pages | PDF | 3.35 MB

At the root of our understanding of territory is the concept of terra-land-a surface of fixed points with stable features that can be calculated, categorised, and controlled. But what of the many spaces on Earth that defy this simplistic characterisation: Oceans in which 'places' are continuously re-formed? Air that can never be fully contained? Watercourses that obtain their value by transcending boundaries?

This book examines the politics of these spaces to shed light on the challenges of our increasingly dynamic world. Through a focus on the planet's elements, environments, and edges, the contributors to Territory beyond Terra extend our understanding of territory to the dynamic, contentious spaces of contemporary politics.

"In a time and space marked indelibly by anthropogenic impact, Territory Beyond Terra offers new maps to comprehend our changing worlds. This fine book shows the intimate links between natural elements, geo-physical manifestations, and geopolitical power. It offers ways to understand the politics of the geo, but also shows how new politics can be shaped through and with the geo." - Sara Fregonese, Birmingham Fellow in Urban Resilience at the University of Birmingham
