Targeted at students studying contemporary conflicts and challenges at A2, this book explores how geography adds to the study of contemporary political issues. It considers why geographers study conflict; conflicts over live issues (including the proposed High-Speed 2 rail link between London and Birmingham); separatism and the case for independent nations; armed conflicts; and contemporary challenges posed by multicultural societies and global poverty.

Bob Digby has taught in schools and universities for over 35 years.

Sue Warn is a chief examiner and highly experienced author.
