The Revenge of Geography:What the Map Tells Us About Coming Conflicts...R.Kaplan­

  • Feb 2, 2013 · 1:30 PM

Kaplan builds on the insights, discoveries, & theories of great geographers & geopolitical thinkers of the near & distant past to look back at critical pivots in history & then to look forward at the evolving global scene. Kaplan traces the history of the world's hot spots by examining their climates, topographical, & proximities to other embattled lands. The Russian steppe's pitiless climate & limited vegetation bred hard & cruel men bent on destruction, for example, while Nazi geopoliticians distorted geopolitics entirely, calculating that space on the globe used by the British Empire & the Soviet Union could be swallowed by a greater German homeland. 2013, 432 pp
