Book Review: Prisoners of Geography

27 Nov

Tim Marshall provides excellent service to the public who like myself get confused by international news.  The material is comprehensive of the globe, including the Arctic, excluding Australia.  Each chapter also has concise historical information and background of regional conflicts.  One of many subjects I was not aware…neither South America nor Africa (as continents) have significant deep water harbors, which have hindered their economic development.  It is not enough to have 1000s of miles of coastline!
