How does a country‚Äôs geography influence its development and the way it interacts with the rest of the world? 

From the flat plain of northern Europe to the myriad islands of Japan, from the easily-navigable Mississippi to the mountainous border between India and China, Tim Marshall analyses the modern world through maps. 

On the way we learn lots of history, too, including the mistakes made in setting boundaries in Africa and the Middle East, and gain insights into the factors that will shape our future. 

Join us to discuss this original take on international politics.

The event is free to attend and is open to all - no booking required. If you don't have time to read the book, a summary will be available.

Email Sue Kay ( or call DDE on 01392 438811 for enquiries.

An initiative of Devon Development Education, Global Book Club Plymouth is supported by the University of Plymouth.
