review Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps That Tell You Everything You Need to Know About Global Politics

Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps That Tell You Everything You Need to Know About Global Politics Free read Ç 6 THE MILLION COPY INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER Geography shapes not only our history but where we're headedAll leaders are constrained by geography Their choices are limited by mountains rivers seas and concrete Yes to follow world events you need to understand people ideas and movements but if you don't know geography you'll never have the full pictureIf you've ever wondered why Putin is so obse. Yeah well it took me some time to finally and officially finished cause I stopped reading for couple months Anyway before I get into it I have to say that I did enjoy this just to make that clear Because sometimes I feel like I have to say about the aspects which were not great in my opinion and I forget to speak about the things that I actually enjoyed I ve always enjoyed geography and always stared at maps for way too long The only game I use on my phone is a geography game when it gives you countrycity in the world and you have to locate it on a blind map So of course this book was something I had to buy However I have to say that I would appreciate if the book worked with the maps it included And I wanted maps It often felt like the maps were just slapped into the book and rarely worked with I would love this to use old maps of first settlement and compare them with the current one To SHOW how geography influenced the evolution of the area rather than just TALK about it That would be really awesome however I can understand that it may have not been possible in a book which has some odd 300 pages Maybe an extended version Or separated into several books I ll have to edit this review later on cause I marked several uotes from the book I wanted to add here however I already lend the book to a friend So later I really liked the separation of the book however I would enjoy if it was logical in a way It went from Russia to China than the USA then Europe and then in a couple of chapters it went back to Pakistan and India and later to Korea and Japan and then it jumped to Latin America again I believe that the flow would be better if there were sense and order in how the chapters followed each other The three chapters which were probably the best were Russia China and the USA Can you see a pattern there All were chapters focusing only on one country not a whole continent But at the same time I will say that the one which I enjoyed the most was Africa which deserved pages because it felt rushed and somewhat oversimplified And with finishing reading the chapter on Africa I also realised another issue The author had a tendency to introduce ideas he did not mention until then Which is a shame because those seemed to be the most interesting thoughts What I do not understand why there was a chapter on Western Europe which spend like two or three pages on the topic of Greece Either it should have been Europe chapter or European Union chapter Probably the former Also where is Australia and New Zealand Is one chapter missing The author did acknowledge that he did not write on Australia or Canada and Indonesia However I have to say I do not feel like the book reached its limit 300 pages is not that many and the glaring lack of the whole continent is just strange

Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps That Tell You Everything You Need to Know About Global Politics Free read Ç 6 Ssed with Crimea why the USA was destined to become a global superpower or why China's power base continues to expand ever outwards the answers are all hereIn ten chapters and ten maps Prisoners of Geography looks at the past present and future to offer an essential insight into one of the major factors that determines world historyIt's time to put the 'geo' back into geopolitics'Like having. Several disclaimers 1 I am a historical geographer by inclination and education and I have taught history and geography I have also published articles in leading scholarly journals2 I have read the forward and the first half of the first section concerning Russia and cannot read further3 Tim Marshall is an incredibly ignorant smug ass and the living avatar of the Dunning Kruger effect This is an opinion I formed of him while reading this book This opinion is not one I believe any new information short of meeting him and having him explain that he wrote this book as a cruel joke can shake I sincerely believe that this book is a confidence scheme working upon people s innocence and does real harm Okay with that out of the wayHoly god has anyone ever written such a pile of incomprehensibly written self contradictory and wrong headed nonsense Cribbing liberally from his dogeared volume Military History for Complete Dummies Marshall reiterates the absolute worst ideas the Geographic Determinism arguments of the early 20th century and pretends that they are his very own profound truths about the human condition rather than entirely discredited theories and profoundly and inescapably racist ones at that Aside from his apparently not knowing what half the ideas he stole from Halford MacKinder were supposed to explain he falls into every trap that Ratzel and Semple sidestepped and incredibly makes the entirely execrable Jared Diamond look like a thoughtful scholar by comparison To put this volume into a geographer s perspective imagine a chemist finding a book explaining a new and amazing theory of fire the secret is phlogiston I am on page 14 and have already filled the margins of the book with enough notes to crash Goodreads if I included them so let s just reduce my critiues to the essentials 1 Marshall believes that nations are the natural political unit and are optimally composed of a uniform ethnic identity1a Marshall thinks that boundaries are real things and that ethno nationalism would solve all this warfare thing we seem to have trouble with2 Marshall conflates history with military history and that all wars are an attempt to avoid the next war by finding natural borders 3 Marshall is entirely unaware of the hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy4 Marshall is capable of phrasings like in order to extend their global reach around the world page xvi in my edition4a Another howler The Pact was supposed to be made of iron but with hindsight by the early 1980s was rusting and after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 it crumbled to dust I defy anyone to diagram that sentence 5 Marshall is entirely ignorant of any history that precedes 2001 except for what he can plagiarize from the Wikipedia blurb you see at the head of a Google search 6 Marshall can t even keep his own fake history straight enough to make it through the entirely mischaracterized history of the Rus without contradicting himself endlessly First we are told that the Urals are impassible and prevent invasions from Asia A couple of paragraphs later the Mongols almost destroy the Rus during their invasion from Asia across the Urals7 Extra CreditSee if you can find the page where Marshall writes so ineptly that he suggests that military aircraft use concrete as fuel 7a See if you can find the page where he claims Putin thinks only about three things God mountains and pizza I would enjoy hearing Marshall explain to which of these categories belongs disrupting western democracies through a sustained campaign of social media disinformation 8 The word bear is not Russian Marshall you stupid lazy bastard It is Germanic in origin Look stuff up9 Marshall thinks that time zone is a unit of measure By that system Antarctica is unimaginably vast Were Russia rotated 90 degrees it would occupy many fewer time zones Also were Russia located along the euator but of the same area and shape it would again occupy many fewer time zones10 Marshall uestions Putin s assessment of the collapse of the USSR as a major geopolitical disaster I would argue that the postscript has borne out that opinion largely because of its role in enabling the rise of Putin s authoritarian Russian state out of Yeltsin s eually vicious kleptocracy let alone the resulting regional destabilization11 Marshall attempts a defense of Sarah Palin s you can see Russia from Alaska comment as though it were a sensible response to a uestion about her foreign policy experience Marshall s argument is essentially that because that statement is factually true Palin is not as incurably stupid as himself If that premise were so my looking at the moon ualifies me to head NASA12 There is a passage of absolutely insane nonsense about China slowly conuering Siberia through the clever subterfuge of Chinese restaurants Really 13 Marshall wants to argue that Africa is impoverished because of its geographic isolation Odd that Africa which is so close to Europe and Asia that it is actually connected was not too isolated that it was protected from five centuries of European resource exploitation and slaving14 Marshall explicitly points to the Southern Cone of South America as another region too remote from civilization to be prosperous If that argument made any sense at all then Colombia Haiti and El Salvador would be richer and developed than Argentina and Chile 15 Everything else Marshall wrote but I have not mentioned is eually illogical and factually incorrect Those passages are still stupid and wrong just less entertainingly stupid and wrongAnyway I read 14 pages of this complete shite and am astonished that anyone has made it farther I am also uite frankly offended that so many could be so entirely ignorant of the world that this fart cloud got anything than ridicule for reviews Discovering that it rates than four stars is a sad joke The only use I can imagine for this volume is giving excepts to a class and have them learn critical reasoning by laughing at itI fear for humanity sometimes often Dissenting opinions cheerfully entertained in the comments Be warned I do respond

Overall an interesting read but little new information for anyone with than just a passing interest in history or geo politics There is too much America is awesome and too little actual in depth information Further the title is somewhat misleading I had the impression that there would be ten actual maps ones that you don t see or use very often to define your view of the world but could be considered important nonetheless Rather the author just uses the generic maps that exist of the world s major continents and regions Concluding it s worth a read if you need a primer on the back story behind current geopolitics and you want to have something to tell your friends at the bar than those RussiansChineseAmericansIslamists are just modern imperialists If you are looking for something in depth look further
