Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Peter Mcloughlin | 2/11/2014

    " This book brings back an area of study neglected in the late twentieth century geography. At the begining of the 20th century it was a thriving field and even though its practicioners may have overestimated its importance it was rather prescient. The study of geography and power and threat analysis of all the worlds powers sheds a light on the current situation. It also gives contours of world politics and national interests of major powers. This kind of analysis might give policy makers a clue as to the problems that will arise in the 21st century. The book is disturbing but not hopeless. I will not share his conclusion but only recommend reading it because it sheds a lot of light. "

    " This was an interesting way to look at world history and current events. Particularly liked the chapters on Russia and China. Felt like I needed to have a map on hand at all times for reference, but wasn't so dense that I couldn't get through it. "

    " Book has structural flaws, but there are many interesting insights, and it serves as a gateway to broader reading on geopolitics. Kaplan's most important contribution might be compiling the bibliography. "

    " Somewhat complicated reading at times but his discussion of the "pivot" countries was very interesting. "
