Read full description of the books A Spatial Approach to Regionalism in the Global Economy:Niemann (international studies, Trinity College) challenges the traditional manner in which regionalization has been approached and suggests that the failure to come to grips with the phenomenon is the result of the modernist relegation of space to margins of analysis. He advances an alternative approach which views space as a social construct and traces the emergence of modern states as one of multiple layers of a global social space, then applies this model to southern Africa and Latin America. He proposes that regions may also serve as space for counterhegemonic mobilization.
Read information about the authorMichael Niemann grew up in a small town in Germany, ten kilometers from the Dutch border. Crossing that border often at a young age sparked in him a curiosity about the larger world. He studied political science at the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms Universität in Bonn and international studies at the University of Denver.
During his academic career he focused his work on southern Africa and frequently spent time in the region. After taking a fiction writing course from his friend, the late Fred Pfeil, he switched to mysteries as a different way to write about the world.
His first fiction publication was the story "Africa Always Needs Guns," which appeared in the 2012 Mystery Writers of America anthology "Vengeance," edited by Lee Child. Valentin Vermeulen, his protagonist, first appeared in that story. Check out his latest adventures in "Legitimate Business" and "Illicit Trade."
