    Klappentext
    Highlighting the contribution of key thinkers from the Third World, Geopolitics and the Post-colonial examines the dynamic nature of spatial power and cultural representation. This book is unique in the way it reconceptualizes geopolitical analysis from a post-colonial perspective. A key motif concerns tracing the historical impact of the United States on the societies of the South and especially the Latin South. Throughout the text, ideas and events, interventions and representations are woven together in a critique of the effects of Western power.
