Structure and Dynamics of the Political Geografical Images of the Modern World
The article substantiates the idea of the world as a network space, a self-developed and self-representative network system of political geographical images (PGI) i.e. political ideas structured from geospatial positions. The PGI network-system is first of all formed as a network of mass media images. These images functionally include the links existing between them, they sort of mean each other, their creation and development is not possible without the parallel development of the image-geo- graphic context. The essence of the process lies in the constant increase of parallel image-geographic context creating at a certain moment a comprehensive system-image of the modem world. The main function of the inner links in the PGI network-system is spacing of political events. Such links help to construct image-geographic transitions from the events localized in a traditional geographic area to PGI maps already based on the network principle.
