    Abstract

    Neil’s profound contribution to political geography is encapsulated in two books differing in style but unifi ed in argument. American Empire (Smith, 2003) is, among very many other things, a brilliant and scholarly intellectual biography of Isaiah Bowman, a geographer and public intellectual deeply implicated in the elaboration of US foreign policy for three decades, beginning in 1917 with his recruitment to the committee charged with devising the US negotiating position for the international settlement following World War I. The Endgame of Globalization (Smith, 2005) is an altogether more urgent and polemical work, responding to the so-called Global War on Terror and the associated US invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Both books by turn scold and explain the liberal ideologies of globalization.
