About this Book
People/States/Territories examines the role of state personnel in shaping, and being shaped by, state organizations and territories, and demonstrates how agents have actively contributed to the reproduction and transformation of the British state over the long term.
- A valuable corrective to recent characterizations of territory as a static and given geographical concept
- An explication of the political geographies of state reproduction and transformation, through its focus on state territoriality and the variegated character of state power
- Considerable empirical insight into the consolidation of the British state over the long term.
