In this much-anticipated sequel to international bestseller Prisoners of Geography, Tim Marshall explores ten regions that are set to shape global politics in a new age of great-power rivalry. He talks to Julia Wheeler about why Europe’s next refugee crisis is closer than we think; why the Middle East must look beyond oil and sand to secure its future; why the Mediterranean is one of the most volatile flashpoints of the 21st century; and why the Earth’s atmosphere is set to become the world’s next battleground. With his trademark wit and insight, Tim shares a gripping exploration of the power of geography to shape humanity’s past, present and future.
