The Power of Geography with Tim Marshall.
If you want to understand what’s happening in the world, look at a map. Tim Marshall’s global bestseller Prisoners of Geography showed how every nation’s choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. Since then, the geography hasn’t changed, but the world has.
In a revelatory Salon London live stream, Tim will explore the ten regions that are set to shape global politics in a new age of great-power rivalry, the subject of his new book: The Power of Geography: Ten Maps That Reveal the Future of Our World. Find out why Europe’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 Earth’s atmosphere is set to become the world’s next battleground. In ten chapters covering Australia, The Sahel, Greece, Turkey, the UK, Iran, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, Spain and Space.
Yes in this lucid and gripping exploration, he’ll explain the power of geography to shape humanity’s past, present – and future.
