Tim Marshall – The Power of Geography – Ten Maps that Reveal the Future of Our World

If you don’t know what’s happening in the world, look at a map. Tim Marshall’s global bestseller: Prisoners of Geography shows how every nation’s choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. Geography hasn’t changed but the world has. Marshall explores ten regions that are set to shape global politics in a new age of power rivalry. The refugee crisis is critical; trouble brews in the Sahel; the Middle East must look beyond oil to secure a future and the eastern Mediterranean is a flashpoint of the 21st century. The Earth’s atmosphere is to become the next battleground.
