In this provocative, surprising book, Robert DKaplan, the author of the best-selling book by Mousson and the Balkans Ghosts, offers a new revealing prism through which to view global upheavals and understand what future for continents and countries around the world.In The Revenge of Geography, Kaplan draws on the ideas, discoveries and theories of great geographers and geopolitical thinkers of the near and distant past to look back at the critique of the pivots of history, and then to look forward to the evolution of the world stage.Kaplan retraces the history of the world’s hotspots, by examining their climates, topographies, and proximity to other besieged landsThe ruthless Russian steppes of climate and limited climate of the harsh and cruel high vegetation of humans bent on destruction, for example, while the geopolitical Nazis deformed geopolitical entirely, the calculation of space on the globe used by the British Empire and the Soviet Union could be swallowed by a larger German homelandKaplan then applies the lessons learned from the current crises in Europe, Russia, China, India, Turkey, Iran and the Arab countries of the Middle East.The result is a comprehensive interpretation of the next conflict cycle across Eurasia.Remarkably, the future can be understood in the context of temperature, distribution, and other certainties: China, able to feed itself alone 23 per cent of its population from the land, which is only 7 per cent of arable land, has sought energy, minerals and metals from these brutal regimes that Burma, Iran and Zimbabwe, putting it in moral conflict with the states-From Afghanistan to porous borders will keep the main route of invasion of India, and to an indispensable rear base for Pakistan, India, the main enemy.Iran will exploit the advantage of being the only country that straddles both energy in the producing areas of the Persian Gulf region and the Caspian Sea.Finally, Kaplan asserts that the United States is at risk of becoming involved in far-flung conflicts with Iraq and Afghanistan rather than directing it directly.
