Seeking conceptual clarity this volume showcases the latest research in the field. The growing interest in regions is reflected in the range of disciplinary perspectives deployed in this collection with contributions from geographers and political scientists as well as historians.This volume, with its lively mixture of case studies and conceptual exploration, promises to become the standard work in this growing and exciting area of scholarship.
