Steinberg, Phillip E.
Journal of Geography, v96 n2 p113-118 Mar-Apr 1997
Reviews recent theoretical advances in political geography, particularly those that stress the political conflict behind the production of space. Discusses how this has impacted the study of environmental phenomena such as hazards, human-land relationships, development, and international environmental governance. Suggests ways that political geography can inform environmental education. (MJP)
