Secrets of Geopolitics Explained: Graduate Level Course by University Professor Filip Kovacevic

What drives the behavior of Great Powers? Why are some states successful while others fail? What factors can sustain an empire? What are the challenges of the emerging multi-polar world in the 21st century? All these questions and many more can be answered with a proper theoretical framework. In this one-of-a-kind course, Professor Filip Kovacevic argues that geopolitics provides precisely such a framework.

In a series of information-packed lectures, professor Kovacevic presents the foundational texts and concepts of geopolitics. He distills the main ideas of the British geographer and politician Halford Mackinder, the American admiral and professor Alfred Thayer Mahan, the Dutch-American scholar Nicholas Spykman, and their contemporary advocate Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Professor Kovacevic also looks in detail at the opposing geopolitical vision of the Russian scholars and military officers Nikolai Danilevski and Peter Savitsky, and their contemporary advocates Yevgeny Primakov and Alexander Dugin. Most of this material has never been presented in English before and is largely unknown to the U.S. audience. In relation to Russian geopolitics, professor Kovacevic also discusses certain ideas of the German geopolitics professor Karl Haushofer and the French-Romanian writer Jean Parvulesco.

The aim of the course is to provide conceptual tools to understand, explain, and predict political events which are shaking to the core the political status quo all across the world, especially in Europe and Asia.

  1. What’s the overall lenght of dvd’s?

    • spiro skouras says:

      Hi Jan,
      The page is still under construction, the length of the DVD is over two hours and forty minutes long.
      Thank you for being a member and supporting Newsbud.

  2. I hope you will put this on vimeo too as the shipping costs are a bit too much for my budget vuz I can’t afford to pay 120 bucks for 1 dvd

  3. Suggestion for future Newsbud DVDs:
    1. Use a polypropylene jewel case-or a standard high quality movie DVD jewel case (the 2 DVDs I have ordered arrived with cracked jewel cases that fell apart when I opened the package-very low quality)
    2. Include a root menu and scene selection option (Kovacevic DVD has no menu-it plays begins playing at the 24 second point-specific lesson segments cannot be chosen-have to fast forward)
    3. Format the DVD so that it plays in all computers (when played in a computer, it opens video and audio files of the DVD instead of queuing up a root menu)
