THE REVENGE OF GEOGRAPHY
What the Map Tells Us About Coming Conflicts and the Battle Against Fate
He traces the history of the world’s hot spots by examining their climates, topographies, and proximities to other embattled lands. Finally, he posits that the United States might rue engaging in far-flung conflicts with Iraq and Afghanistan rather than tending to its direct neighbor, Mexico, which is on the verge of becoming a semi-failed state due to drug-cartel carnage. A brilliant rebuttal to thinkers who suggest that globalism will trump geography, this indispensable work shows how timeless truths and natural facts can help prevent this century’s looming cataclysms.
