Geopolitics and Empire
The Legacy of Halford Mackinder
Reviews and Awards
Winner of the 2010 Murchison Award of the Royal Geographical Society for the 'publication judged to have contributed most to geographical science in preceding recent years.'
"Halford Mackinder stands astride geography as perhaps no other geographer ever has done, or likely will.... Gerry kearns gives us here what must be the definitive biography of Mackinder as the man, academic, teacher, and imperialist.... Almost every page contains new insights, and the book repays close and multiple readings." - Geographical Review
