"Political geography is a subsection of human geography that until recently has received little attention in this country. It is concerned with on the one hand man organized in political units and on the other with natural environment as it is significant for political activity. In order to help towards a greater understanding of the present complex international situation the author has approached it from the point of view of political geography, endeavouring in particular to give sufficient historical and political detail to assist the students of geography who proposes to take up this study."--Jacket
