After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, geopolitics- like most other issues of the human society- was changed. In fact, the new geopolitics is a novel explanation for the structure and situation of the post-Cold War world and redrawing a geopolitical map of the world .The geopolitics of the New World Order, resistance geopolitics, environmental geopolitics, and geo-economy are the most important geopolitical discourses of future approaches in international affairs. Emphasizing the importance of resurgence of the colonial geopolitics and the Cold War geopolitical theories, the new geopolitical discourse of the new Cold War suggests that the post-Cold War geopolitical order of the transition period - simultaneous with entering the Cold War of third millennium- has got a close link with some of the dominant cultures in the past geopolitical discourses. Therefore, although the disintegration of the Soviet Union as a historic event has widely changed the various dimensions of human life, it has not given rise to a new pattern of international politics differing from pervious policies. The present paper explores that the new Cold-War geopolitics, in fact, has emerged as an outcome of the most important attitudes of the past discourses. This means that from a structural point of view, it embraces the theories based on geographical realities (colonial geopolitics), containment strategy (the Cold War geopolitics) and also geo-economic approach. From the Essence point of view, it goes along with colonial geopolitics, the Cold War geopolitics and the new World Order geopolitics.
