Prisoners of Geography: Our World Explained in 12 Simple Maps - Illustrated Edition

Have you ever wondered how the USA becomes a superpower, why people go to war, and why some countries are rich while others are poor? Find the answers to these questions and many more in this eye-opening book, which uses maps to explain how geography has shaped the history of our world.

Splitting the globe into twelve distinct regions, former Sky News Diplomatic Editor Tim Marshall redresses our techno-centric view of the world and suggests that one of our key political drivers continues to be our physical geography. Beginning with Russia (and its bewildering eleven time zones), we are treated to an illuminating, border-by-border disassembly of what makes the world what it is; why, for instance, the Himalayas will always divide China and India, or why Russia is forever trying to dominate the lands to its west.

This remarkable, unique introduction to world affairs will inspire curious minds everywhere. A stunning abridged and illustrated edition of the international bestseller Prisoners of Geography, by acclaimed author Tim Marshall.
