A stunning abridged and illustrated edition of the international bestseller Prisoners of Geography, by acclaimed author Tim Marshall.

PRAISE FOR THE ORIGINAL EDITION OF PRISONERS OF GEOGRAPHY: Quite simply, one of the best books about geopolitics you could imagine: reading it is like having a light shone on your understanding... Marshall is clear-headed, lucid and possessed of an almost uncanny ability to make the broad picture accessible and coherent ... the book is, in a way which astonished me, given the complexities of the subject, unputdownable... I can't think of another book that explains the world situation so well -- Nicholas Lezard, Evening Standard

A fresh way of looking at maps... as guideposts to the often thorny relations between nations -- New York Times
