‘The visual approach is spectacular. Unusual but incredibly accessible’ – Lucy at Head Office
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.
