The value of territory: towards a Marxist geopolitics
Colas, Alejandro and Pozo, G. (2011) The value of territory: towards a Marxist geopolitics. Geopolitics 16 (1), pp. 211-220. ISSN 1465-0045.
The article argues for a Marxist geopolitics that moves beyond both critical geopolitics and the discredited classical geopolitics. It underlines the valorisation of territory by capital across three levels of abstraction: that of social infrastructure, class conflict and ground-rent proper. The recent Russian-Ukrainian gas wars are briefly analysed by way of illustrating the application of this distinctive approach to geopolitics.
