Includes an exclusive preview of The Power of Geography — the sequel to Prisoners of Geography — out on 22/04/2021 — PREORDER NOW!
Geography shapes not only our history, but where we're headed…

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 and ten maps, 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.
'Like having a light shone on your understanding… I can't think of another book that explains the world situation so well.
— Nicolas Lezard, Evening Standard
'Sharp insights into the way geography shapes the choices of world leaders.' — Gideon Rachman, Financial Times

    we live in exceptionally unstable times.
    Tilly Woodshar citeretfor 7 måneder siden
    The climate, fed by the Gulf Stream, blessed the region with the right amount of rainfall to cultivate crops on a large scale, and the right type of soil for them to flourish in. This allowed for population growth in an area in which, for most, work was possible all year round, even in the heights of summer. Winter actually adds a bonus, with temperatures warm enough to work in but cold enough to kill off many of the germs which to this day plague huge parts of the rest of the world.
    Good harvests mean surplus food that can be traded; this in turn builds up trading centres which become towns. It also allows people to think of more than just growing food and turn their attention to ideas and technology.
