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 understand world events you wish to have to understand people, ideas and movements…but if you don’t know geography, you can never have the full picture.; To understand Putin’s actions, for example, it is essential to believe that, to be a world power, Russia should have a navy., And if its ports freeze for six months each year then it should have access to a warm water port – hence, the annexation of Crimea was the only option for Putin. To understand the Middle East, it’s important to know that geography is the reason why countries have logically been shaped as they are – and this is why invented countries (e.g. Syria, Iraq, Libya) will not live on as nation states.;Spread over ten chapters (covering Russia; China; the USA; Latin America; the Middle East; Africa; India and Pakistan; Europe; Japan and Korea; and Greenland and the Arctic), the usage of maps, essays and every so often the personal experiences of the widely travelled creator, Prisoners of Geography looks at the past, present and future to offer an essential guide to one of the most major determining factors in world history.
