Tim Marshall's global bestsellerÂ Prisoners of GeographyÂ showed how every nationâ€™s choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. Since then, the geography hasnâ€™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 Europeâ€™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 Earthâ€™s atmosphere is set to become the worldâ€™s next battleground.
