GPU is proud to inaugurate the first episode of its podcast with Dr Joanne Yao’s book launch, lecturer in International Relations at Queen Mary University of London. In her book, The Ideal River – How control of nature shaped the international order, Joanne explores how the quest to tame nature during the 18th and 19th Century came to shape the global geographical imaginary, as well as IR concepts central to the emergence of the early international order. Joanne had the pleasure to discuss her work with academic friends on a boat in Hackney, and GPU compiled the best moments of this encounter in this episode.

The book is available to order on Manchester University Press’ website here: https://manchesteruniversitypress.co.uk/9781526154385/
