It’s time to put the ‘geo’ back into geopolitics.

Un assaig fresc i original que explora la geografia política actual: «Prisoner of Geography» explica com totes les estratègies polítiques són condicionades per la geografia. Un llibre innovador que fa servir mapes, assajos i experiències personals del escriptor amb la finalitat de posar en evidència la gran importància de la geografia.

All leaders are constrained by geography. Their choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. 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, using maps, essays and occasionally the personal experiences of the widely travelled author, 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.
