    Geopolitics, History, and International Relations seeks to explore the theoretical


    implications of contemporary geopolitics with particular reference to territorial


    problems and issues of state sovereignty, and publishes papers on contemporary


    world politics and the global political economy from a variety of methodologies and


    approaches. Interdisciplinary and wide-ranging in scope, Geopolitics, History, and


    International Relations also provides a forum for discussion on the latest


    developments in the theory of international relations and aims to promote an


    understanding of the breadth, depth and policy relevance of international history. Its


    purpose is to stimulate and disseminate theory-aware research and scholarship in


    international relations throughout the international academic community. Geopolitics,


    History, and International Relations offers important original contributions by


    outstanding scholars and has the potential to become one of the leading journals in


    the field, embracing all aspects of the history of relations between states and


    societies.

    The publications of Addleton Academic Publishers are books and other


    materials that further scholarly investigation, advance interdisciplinary inquiry,


    stimulate public debate, educate both within and outside the classroom, and


    enhance cultural life.


    In its commitment to increasing the range and vigor of intellectual


    pursuits, Addleton AP continually extends its horizons to embody university


    publishing at its best. We are now focused on a future in which large-scale electronic


    delivery will augment or possibly replace today’s paper delivery where appropriate.


    Through its publishing programs, Addleton AP promotes research and education,


    enriches cultural and intellectual life, fosters regional pride and accomplishments,


    and diligently pursues the best and most innovative technology to meet the needs of


    our readers.


    Addleton AP publishes academic books and journals of high quality on a


    wide range of subjects primarily in the humanities and social sciences and issues a


    few publications for primarily professional audiences. It is best known for its


    publications in the broad and interdisciplinary area of theory and history of cultural


    production, and as a publisher willing to take chances with nontraditional and


    interdisciplinary publications, both books and journals. The titles we publish are


    subject to peer review, which guarantees their relevance but is also costly and time


    consuming, and they are printed in limited press runs for small, specialized


    audiences, which increases their unit cost. As an academic press, our mandate is to


    serve the world of scholarship and culture as a professional, not-for-profit publisher.


    Intent on delivering high-quality research into the hands of students and faculty in a


    timely manner, Addleton AP has succeeded in attracting first-rate authors.



    Subject areas. Addleton AP is an independent company, established to serve the


    needs of the academic and professional community through the international


    dissemination of ideas. We publish scholarly books and thoughtful books for the


    educated general reader in: history, philosophy, law, economics, public policy,


    natural science, history of science, psychology, and education. While primarily an


    academic publisher, many of our books are also of interest to a general readership


    and we are committed to publishing outstanding books which stimulate public debate


    about key issues in social, political and cultural life.


    Mission. Whether it be in content, production, marketing or distribution or any other


    aspect of a book’s publication, we place quality at the core of our publishing.


    Addleton AP's infrastructure is underpinned by professionalism and expertise. Our


    aim is to combine the publication of original, cutting-edge work of the highest quality


    with a systematic program of textbooks and course books for students and scholars


    in further and higher education. We always adhere to the highest production


    standards; whether it be accuracy, readability or production quality and pride


    ourselves on the service we provide editors and societies.


    Partnership. We are committed to meeting the needs of the academic and


    professional communities, and to working with those communities to define the


    needs of the future. We recognize the importance of personal attention, flexibility and


    responsiveness in our relationships with editors, authors, societies and customers.


    Our continuing strategies are developed within the context of a deep understanding


    of the implications that the electronic dissemination of ideas will have on both


    publishing and the world of academic research. We understand that a rewarding


    publishing partnership is founded on mutual trust and respect for what each party


    brings to the relationship.



    Addleton AP publishes a range of leading international journals presenting original


    research by international scholars. We are committed to meeting the needs of


    academic and professional communities and to working with those communities to


    define and meet the information needs of the future. We also strongly encourage


    ideas for new journals that reflect or extend the range of our publishing.

    SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS



    With a cover letter to the Editors, send an original copy with name(s),


    institutional affiliation and full address (with e-mail if possible), plus two copies


    bearing only the paper title. This latter is for ‘blind’ review purposes; no name(s) of


    author should appear on the opening page, last page or in page headers. The


    suggested length for Geopolitics, History, and International Relations papers is


    4,000 to 8,000 words, or about 10 to 20 double-spaced, typewritten pages, with


    about one inch margins on all sides. References should be typed double-spaced in a


    separate section, and numbered consecutively. They will be printed at the end of the


    paper. No part of a paper can be rewritten in galley or page proofs. Any addenda on


    galley proofs other than corrections of typographical errors may be disregarded at


    the discretion of the Editor. Special conventions, if followed consistently, are


    permitted where formal language is used. Diagrams, tables, and illustrations should


    be on separate sheets with their desired position in the text clearly indicated.


    Symbolic formulae appearing as separate lines should be clearly distinguished in the


    text. Foreign letters (Greek, German, etc.), special symbols, as well as zero and


    capital O and prime marks should be indicated in the margin. Materials to be printed


    in italics, especially single letters in text or in formulae, should be underlined. Failure


    to follow house style requirements, provide disk or electronic copy, an abstract and


    institutional affiliation details may delay review process, publication schedule and


    citation.


    All submitted manuscripts are independently refereed by readers


    recommended by the Editors in consultation with the Editorial Advisory Board.


    Anonymity is assured. Decisions to publish or not, to request revisions, if necessary


    resubmission, and/or extra adjudication, are entirely at the discretion of the Editors.


    Format acknowledgement may take up to one month, full consideration may take up


    to six months. Copyright and all rights therein are retained by authors. Permission for


    papers to be reprinted can only be granted by authors, who should be contacted


    directly. Due acknowledgement of source and authorship where applicable, and


    copyright clearance of cited matter in the articles are the express responsibility of the


    authors. The Editorial Advisory Board and the publishers accept no responsibility for


    any lapses or infringements. Endnotes are preferred to footnotes. They should be


    flagged in text by a superscript note number at the appropriate point (not via name


    and date). References within numerically ordered endnotes should follow Harvard


    style rather than Oxford style, i.e. last name, initials of author, title of book or article,


    name of journal or collected work, followed by publisher (excepting journals) and


    place of publication, year of publication and exact page citation (e.g. p. 82, pp.


    86−87). Abstracts, of between 50 and 100 words, must be included. Longer


    quotations should be set in separate paragraphs, so as to be printed in small type. In


    the manuscript they should still be typed double-spaced, but separated from the


    remainder of the manuscript by a small space before and after. Quoted sentences


    should be indicated by double-quotes (“). Words or phrases mentioned should be in


    single-quotes (‘).Single quotes are acceptable inside double when used for a quote


    within a quote.
