"National Identity and Geopolitical Visions searches for national orientations in the relationship of a people with the world, a relationship based on the desire for state security and for an influence outside that state." "Through nine country-specific essays - on Germany, Britain, the United States, Argentina, Australia, Russia, Serbia, Iraq and India - the author explores whether there is continuity in national values and foreign policy, and how such geopolitical visions are shaped by national and international events. The pattern is diverse, but geopolitical visions are never the rational evaluation of a country's strategic advantages that the word "geopolitics" suggests."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
