Geopolitics in Tolkien’s Works

Geopolitics, strategy, and international affairs are an increasingly important topic for the average person. It determines job prospects, economic growth and decline, war, peace, and whether or not a foreign entity uses a weapon of mass destruction. The practice and theory of geopolitics, strategy, international relations, diplomacy, war, and economics is grounded in theories and ideologies used by rulers today. Geopolitics and strategy dominate JRR Tolkien’s works. This is especially true of the Silmarillion and the Lord of the Rings. This presentation will illustrate not only where this is found in Tolkien’s works, but what geopolitical and strategic ideas are expressed in these works
