    In The Revenge of Geography, Robert D. Kaplan builds on the insights, discoveries, and theories of great geographers and geopolitical thinkers of the near and distant past to look back at critical pivots in history and then to look forward at the evolving global scene. Kaplan traces the history of the world's hot spots by examining their climates, topographies, and proximities to other embattled lands.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I can only think of a very select few who'd be interested in this material.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Revenge of Geography?

    Learning modern military national strategy


    What aspect of Michael Prichard’s performance would you have changed?

    It could have been more lively


    Any additional comments?

    I think another review I read on this book nailed it. The book was slow to pick up, the first half was pretty boring and read like a dry text book, but after that it got more interesting.

    Learning about why Russia, Turkey, China and some other nations did X, or what some of China's actions say about it, or the importance of Mexico was really interesting. Long detailed summaries of academics was... dry..
