Description

All leaders are constrained by geography. Their choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. Yes, to follow world events you need to understand people, ideas and movements - but if you don't know geography, you'll never have the full picture.

If you've ever wondered why Putin is so obsessed with Crimea, why the USA was destined to become a global superpower or why China's power base continues to expand ever outwards, the answers are all here. In 10 chapters (covering Russia, China, the USA, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, India and Pakistan, Europe, Japan and Korea, and the Arctic), using essays and occasionally the personal experiences of the widely travelled author, Prisoners of Geography looks at the past, present and future to offer an essential insight into one of the major factors that determines world history. It's time to put the 'geo' back into geopolitics.

Brilliant insight and narration

One of the most enjoyable audible narrators.
The book is both a good and easy read. It links well known global historical facts to world geography that explain world politics of today. I highly recommend for readers who are not majorly involved in politics, but would like to start understanding them.

Disappointed

I read the chapters on Russia and China with earnest and thought wow! I've learn quite a few things here. Then I skipped to the chapter on Africa and immediately changed my view. Like sooo many other writers on Africa, the continent is described with one overriding narrative: a war torn, conflict stricken land. Africa is AND the about the civil war in the DRC and previous fighting in Angola, Rwanda and Burundi. There is more to African economies than South Africa. For me, the limited scope in the one chapter on Africa was a strong indication of the flawed views the writer took in all the other chapters, so I stopped listening after that. Disappointed.

Sehr angenehm leider ein Problem mit den Kapiteln

Tim Marshall erklärt die Zusammenhänge sehr gut und für Einsteiger ist dieses (Hör-)Buch sehr zu empfehlen. Die Kapitellänge ist auch gut gewählt, sodass man das Buch bequem zwischendurch lesen/hören kann.
Mehr gäbe es nicht zu sagen, wenn es da nicht dieses Problem der Kapitelwahl gäbe. Leider endet das Hörbuch mit Kapitel 6 und alle nachfolgenden Kapitel sind darin enthalten. Heißt, ich muss den Anfang selbst suchen (oder einfach da weiterhören, wo es endete). Das Hörbuch bezieht sich auf eine ältere Ausgabe des Buchs und so fehlen einige Passagen der neuesten Version des Buches. Daher 4 von 5 Sterne aber es ist dennoch eine klare Kaufempfehlung.

Genial

das Buch ist sehr empfehlenswert und unterhaltsam. Es wird einem klar, wie wichtig die Geographie ist und war in der Geschichte der Menschheit.
