This chapter will posit that popular sources of information can enrich the newly emerging' critical geopolitics' by providing the context within which elite geopolitical texts are received but also in which they are produced. The work of Michel Foucault has been of primary significance in this current reconceptualization of space. Gramscian hegemony, which explains, legitimates and at times challenges the dominant understanding by pulling it through the lens of popular discourses. In the geopolitical writings there is a predominance of authors from the Committee on the Present Danger, military and government elites, and university intellectuals, although articles on similar topics are presented with the same authority when written by less technically qualified authors such as the novelist Tom Clancy. Articles describing Soviet invasion anywhere in the world past, present or threatened imply the moral duty of America to resist it.
