Quick Reference

A term suggested by H. Mackinder (1904) to indicate the wealthy interior of Eurasia; whoever controls the heartland would be able permanently to dominate the Eurasian landmass, and consequently gain a ‘*hegemony over the entire world’. Bilgin (2007) Pol. Geog. 26, 7 shows how this concept has been adopted and adapted to help justify foreign and domestic policy-making in Turkey.
