Tim Marshalltsquo;s global bestseller Prisoners of Geography showed how every nationisquo;s choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. Since then, the geography hasndsquo;t changed. But the world has.
In this revelatory new book, Marshall explores ten regions that are set to shape global politics in a new age of great-power rivalry: Australia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, the UK, Greece, Turkey, the Sahel, Ethiopia, Spain and Space. Find out why Europeisquo;s next refugee crisis is closer than it thinks as trouble brews in the Sahel; why the Middle East must look beyond oil and sand to secure its future; why the eastern Mediterranean is one of the most volatile flashpoints of the twenty-first century; and why the Earth squo;s atmosphere is set to become the worldssquo;s next battleground.
Delivered with Marshallgsquo;s trademark wit and insight, this is a lucid and gripping exploration of the power of geography to shape humanity:squo;s past, present tdash; and future.
