Emma Lafleur's curator insight, January 29, 2013 6:53 PM

I am interested in US History and watching the creation of the boundaries with the year that they were created gives a lot of insight into the people and population of that time. Also the rate of change in size from year to year gives insight into the economic and political status of the country at that time. This is a great clip to watch even if just to see how much the country has physically changed over time.

The Separatist Map of Africa

The Separatist Map of Africa | Geospatial Human Geography | Scoop.it
When African states gained independence, the continent's new leaders agreed to respect the old colonial borders to avoid endless wars.

 

This interactive map shows the major conflicts on the African continent where the combatants have geopolitical aspirations to separate from the state and create a new, autonomous state.  Click on the red arrows and you can read about the warring factions and the current situation in that region.

Fascinating interactive map looking at the separatist movements in Africa.  

Cynthia Williams's curator insight, July 3, 2013 2:00 PM

It seems as though African countries are actually trying to go back to their pre-colonial boundaries. The agreement they made to respect the old colonial borders to avoid war has never been effective.

The Geopolitics of Israel: Biblical and Modern

The Geopolitics of Israel: Biblical and Modern | Geospatial Human Geography | Scoop.it

The founding principle of geopolitics is that place -- geography -- plays a significant role in determining how nations will behave. If that theory is true, then there ought to be a deep continuity in a nation's foreign policy. Israel is a laboratory for this theory, since it has existed in three different manifestations in roughly the same place, twice in antiquity and once in modernity. If geopolitics is correct, then Israeli foreign policy, independent of policymakers, technology or the identity of neighbors, ought to have important common features. This is, therefore, a discussion of common principles in Israeli foreign policy over nearly 3,000 years.

The '-stans': A Comprehensive Guide to Central Asia

The '-stans': A Comprehensive Guide to Central Asia | Geospatial Human Geography | Scoop.it

The geography of Central Asia has always proven to be a conundrum to the majority of U.S. citizens. The five former Soviet republics that lie between the Middle East, Russia and the Caspian Sea have similar names — some of which, like Kyrzygstan, are simply unpronounceable in much of the world (in terms of geography, confusion often begets muddled classification). They are also relatively new; these republics all gained their independence when the U.S.S.R. split apart in 1991, and 20 years does not allow much time for a nation to establish itself with prominence on a worldwide scale.
