The Power of Geography: Ten Maps That Reveal the Future of Our World [9781783965373]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Ten maps that reveal the future of global power and politics: the much-anticipated sequel to the million-copy bestseller Prisoners of Geography

Tim Marshall’s global bestseller Prisoners of Geography showed how every nation’s choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. Since then, the geography hasn’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 Europe’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’s atmosphere is set to become the world’s next battleground. 

Delivered with Marshall’s trademark wit and insight, this is a lucid and gripping exploration of the power of geography to shape humanity’s past, present – and future.  

‘An urgent and accessible study of the forces shaping our future on earth and beyond.’ - Ed Husain, author of The House of Islam


‘A skilful navigation of the regions that could define geopolitics for future generations. One to read to stay ahead of the game.’ - Dharshini David, author of The Almighty Dollar


‘A compelling account of the return of geopolitics by the master of maps.’ - Professor Brendan Simms, author of Britain’s Europe


‘An insight into what will shape the world . . . clear writing in complex times.’ - Eamonn Holmes


‘Another outstanding guide to the modern world. Marshall is a master at explaining what you need to know and why.’  -Peter Frankopan
