Editorial Reviews

Book Description

This book demonstrates that territoriality for humans is not an instinct, but a powerful and often indispensable geographical strategy used to control people and things by controlling area. Major changes are explored in the relationships between territory and society from primitive times to the present day, with special attention to the distinctions between premodern and modern uses of space and territory.

Format: Paperback
Actually, I have dreamed of that book long time ago. It should be a guide for all decision makers eveywhere as well as for students of geography, sociology, and urban planning. I wish I could publish even a part of such a book.
