Product Description

THE INTERNATIONAL AND SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

All leaders are constrained by geography. Their choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. Yes, to follow world events you need to understand people, ideas and movements - but if you don't know geography, you'll never have the full picture.

If you've ever wondered why Putin is so obsessed with Crimea, why the USA was destined to become a global superpower, or why China's power base continues to expand ever outwards, the answers are all here.

In ten chapters (covering Russia; China; the USA; Latin America; the Middle East; Africa; India and Pakistan; Europe; Japan and Korea; and the Arctic), using maps, essays and occasionally the personal experiences of the widely travelled author, Prisoners of Geography looks at the past, present and future to offer an essential insight into one of the major factors that determines world history.

It's time to put the 'geo' back into geopolitics.

I would rate this book as the most interesting and informative books I've read. Tim Marshall has provided an overview of the world that makes sense of wars, invasions, territorial disputes and racial tensions between nations.

Whilst war makes no sense the reasoning behind them does if you look from a Geopolitical perspective.

This book is definitely 5 stars and worth reading😁

A very clear and illuminating review of how we got where we are in terms of land and nationhood and a good indication of global trends. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the state of our world or just history.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know this planet.

An interesting outline of how history is shaped by geography.

Fairly readable treatment of what could have been very dull.
