This course examines the global political situation from a geographical perspective. Topics include: how the countries of the world were formed and came to occupy their present territorial configurations; border conflicts and other spatially based international issues; struggles for secession from established states and movements for territorially based autonomy; and the development and enlargement of supranational organizations such as the European Union (EU) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). While the course is globally comprehensive, special attention will be given to current sites of geo-political tension. Maps will be used extensively for both descriptive and analytical purposes.
This course is presented in enhanced podcast format: the presentation images are synched with the audio track and will display in the album artwork section of your iTunes application. If the album artwork field is not already visible, go to the "View" menu and select "Show Artwork."

Petro Porojnecha ,

He cites wikipedia all the time.

I mean, even in school wikipedia was a no-no, as there's no real author there.

But in Stanford, seriously?

very much satisfied

I deeply enjoyed Professor Lewis' teaching method, the materal covered was extensive but managable, and I was able to gain considerable insight into global geography, its nuances and intricacies. loved it

Enjoy!

Great course, very interesting and entertaining.
Awful voice sound quality during audience questions. If downloaded to iphone/ipad, course was not supported by maps, so I followed it online every time entering through iTunesU "catalog".
