Shortlisted for the Waterstones Book of the Year 2019

Shortlisted for the British Book Awards Children's Illustrated & Non-Fiction Book of the Year 2020

Tim Marshall’s Prisoners of Geography has helped millions of readers to understand the complexities and contradictions of geopolitics. A former Waterstones Non-Fiction Book of the Month beloved by our booksellers, it became a bestselling hit with both critics and readers alike.

Now, Sky News’ erstwhile foreign correspondent brings the clarity and accessibility of his approach to a younger generation. Through a dozen regional maps, vividly composed by Grace Easton and Jessica Smith, Marshall offers concise and illuminating commentary on how the vagaries of geography shape animosity and conflict between nations.

Covering everything from the locations of national landmarks to the uneven spread of natural resources, Prisoners of Geography: Our World Explained in 12 Maps provides fascinating answers to the most oft-asked questions in today’s global politics. Perfect both for younger readers coming to the subject for the first time and informed adults seeking clear explanations for current events, this is an invaluable resource in rapidly changing times as well as a beautiful book to treasure forever.

MEDIA REVIEWS

PRAISE FOR THE ORIGINAL EDITION OF PRISONERS OF GEOGRAPHY: "Quite simply, one of the best books about geopolitics you could imagine: reading it is like having a light shone on your understanding... Marshall is clear-headed, lucid and possessed of an almost uncanny ability to make the broad picture accessible and coherent ... the book is, in a way which astonished me, given the complexities of the subject, unputdownable... I can't think of another book that explains the world situation so well" - Nicholas Lezard, Evening Standard "A fresh way of looking at maps... as guideposts to the often thorny relations between nations" - New York Times
