Praise for Tim Marshall and the New York Times Bestseller Prisoners of Geography
"[Marshall] writes with the cool drollery that characterized the work of Christopher Hitchens or Simon Winchester." --USA Today
"Fans of geography, history and politics (and maps) will be enthralled."
--Fort Worth Star-Telegram
"Marshall's insistence on seeing the world through the lens of geography compels a fresh way of looking at maps--not just as objects for orientation or works of art, but as guideposts to the often thorny relations between nations."
--New York Times Book Review
"Marshall is excellent on some of the highways and byways of geopolitics."
--Financial Times
"An incisive, meticulous survey of humanity's physical barriers...this enlightening shred assessment of the walls that separate us proves that there is actually far more that unites us." --Booklist, starred review
