"Earth's physical landscape has shaped human history, and it continues to influence geopolitics, as Tim Marshall shows in [this] large-form illustrated children's version of his 2016 bestseller. . . . For curious children ages 7-15, Prisoners of Geography has lots to fascinate."--The Wall Street Journal

"Marshall's fat Prisoners of Geography [has] been transformed into a dozen large infographic maps . . . designed to highlight the roles geophysical features, or the lack thereof, have played in shaping trade and politics."--Kirkus Reviews
