Tim Marshall’s 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 The power of geography, Marshall takes us into ten regions that are set to shape global politics and power.

Find out why the Earth’s atmosphere is the world’s next battleground; why the fight for the Pacific is just beginning; and why Europe’s next refugee crisis is closer than it thinks.

In ten chapters covering Australia, The Sahel, Greece, Turkey, the UK, Iran, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, Spain and Space, 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.
