In this New York Times bestseller, an award-winning journalist uses ten maps of crucial regions to explain the geo-political strategies of the world powers—“fans of geography, history, and politics (and maps) will be enthralled” (Fort Worth Star-Telegram).

Maps have a mysterious hold over us. Whether ancient, crumbling parchments or generated by Google, maps tell us things we want to know, not only about our current location or where we are going but about the world in general. And yet, when it comes to geo-politics, much of what we are told is generated by analysts and other experts who have neglected to refer to a map of the place in question.

All leaders of nations are constrained by geography. In “one of the best books about geopolitics” (The Evening Standard), now updated to include 2016 geopolitical developments, journalist Tim Marshall examines Russia, China, the US, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Japan, Korea, and Greenland and the Arctic—their weather, seas, mountains, rivers, deserts, and borders—to provide a context often missing from our political reportage: how the physical characteristics of these countries affect their strengths and vulnerabilities and the decisions made by their leaders.

Offering “a fresh way of looking at maps” (The New York Times Book Review), Marshall explains the complex geo-political strategies that shape the globe. Why is Putin so obsessed with Crimea? Why was the US destined to become a global superpower? Why does China’s power base continue to expand? Why is Tibet destined to lose its autonomy? Why will Europe never be united? The answers are geographical. “In an ever more complex, chaotic, and interlinked world, Prisoners of Geography is a concise and useful primer on geopolitics” (Newsweek) and a critical guide to one of the major determining factors in world affairs.

This is a book of geography questions and answers. There are 31 chapters in the book organized into seven sections (USA, World, Bodies of Water, Cultural Geography, Economic Geography, Arrange and Decipher, and Other Topics). Each chapter focuses on a different topic. Within each chapter, questions get progressively more challenging. While the first few questions in each chapter are comparable to school-level competition questions, the last couple of questions in each chapter could stump even national champion geographers. Unlike other books, this book arranges the questions and answers into two different columns. This way the reader can easily cover the answers with a bookmark or hand while going over questions. The structure and format of questions in this book are modeled upon the questions used by the National Geographic Society for the National Geography Bee. With over 1,500 questions, this book will be helpful for children in grades 3–8 who are participating in geography contests. As a question-answer manual, this book should also be of interest to geography buffs and trivia aficionados.
