Perspectives on Political Geography in AP® Human Geography
Leib, Jonathan; Smothers-Marcello, Jody
Journal of Geography, v115 n3 p112-117 2016
Two trends have remade the field of political geography over the past quarter-century. First, a revision of taken-for-granted concepts that amounted to "spatial determinism." Second, pioneering many new and emerging concepts such as political ecology. Both trends are important contributions to the evolving section of the AP Human Geography course on the "Political Organization of Space." Following a plea to make political geography more "political" and "geographical," this article presents a classroom example from the field of political ecology.
