About this book

Introduction

Drawing from military geography’s  spatial roots, its embrace of dynamic systems, and integration of human and biophysical environments, this book helps in understanding  the value of analyzing patterns, processes and systems, and cross-scale and multi-disciplinary ways of acting in a complex world, while making  the case for a resurgence of strategic and military geography in Australia.  Here, leading experts demonstrate that geography retains its relevance in clarifying the scale and dynamics of defense activities in assessments of the international, regional, national, and site impacts of changes in physical, cyber and human geographies. The cases presented show Australia contributing to a growing strategic and military geography.
