First published in 1986, this book demonstrates that territoriality
for humans is not an instinct, but a powerful and often
indispensable geographical strategy used to control people and
things by controlling area. This argument is developed by analysing
the possible advantages and disadvantages that territoriality can
provide, and by considering why some and not others arise at
particular times. Major changes are explored in the relationships
between territory and society from primitive times to the present
day, with special attention to the distinctions between premodern
and modern uses of space and territory. Specific analyses of the
pre-modern uses of territoriality are provided by the history of
the Catholic Church, and, for the modern context, by study of North
American political territorial organization and the organization of
factory, office, and home.
