Praise for Monsoon

‘Kaplan … inculcates a paradigm shift when he suggests that the site of twenty-first-century geopolitical significance will be the Indian Ocean, not the northern Atlantic … The book’s political and economic focus and forecasts are smart and brim with aperçus on the intersection of power, politics, and resource consumption (especially water), and give full weight to the impact of colonialism. An ambitious and prescient study.’ —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

‘Kaplan is a good writer, and his strategic ideas have always been infused with a sense of adventure … a very important book indeed.’ —the Monthly
