    Inhaltsangabe

    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 this audiobook, 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.

    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.

    Unfortunately pro US biased and generalizing

    Concise and clear structure. An interesting, though more broad than deep, analysis of world politics in the last century. However it is rather one history of many and that one is very pro US anti Russia/China, so not really innovative ideas to be published in English.

    In fact especially the chapter about the USA and also the one about Russia and China are quite hard to swallow as a non US fanatic and sounded like pro US propaganda of the last century. The way the US is portrayed as the dominent civilization of all times is just strange to me and make me question the authors time horizon and real understanding of certain complexities.

    In general a lot of generalizations and stereotypes so be aware of those - but also some interesting side stories and I like the scope that also covers less portrayed conflicts like on the Indian subcontinent or in the arctic.
