Geopolitics and Empire

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines Mackinder's ideas in terms of discourse, context, and comparison. Mackinder made his case from Oxford University, from the British Parliament, through government-sponsored innovations in educational curricula, and in textbooks issued by well-established publishing houses. His views on Empire were like a well-used passport, having received many an official stamp. In addition to the importance of setting, arguments convince also because they imply and draw upon other sets of ideas.
