Read Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps That Explain Everything About the World by Tim Marshall. All leaders are constrained by geography. Their choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. Yes, to understand world events you need to understand people, ideas and movements — but if you don't know geography, you'll never have the full picture. Spread over 10 chapters covering Russia, China, the USA, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, India and Pakistan, Europe, Japan and Korea, and Greenland and the Arctic; Prisoners of Geography looks at the past, present and future to offer an essential guide to one of the major determining factors in world history.
