Frankly, none of the other international-relations models have been so fully packaged as is being attempted here with geopolitics. This contrasting process groups within one configuraton all relevant parts for study and for guidance to statecraft.

Yet, the age of petroleum may have evened this “playing field,” and China and India could be emerging to stake their claim on the world’s resources and trade. 32 Once more, the dependency model shows a definition of its common characteristics, along with pertinent assumptions and theories.
