b Eastward to Tartary b i i Robert Kaplan s first book to focus on a single region since his bestselling b Balkan Ghosts b introduces readers to an explosive and little known part of the world destined to become a tinderbox of the future br br Kaplan takes us on a spellbinding journey into the heart of a volatile region stretching from Hungary and Romania to the far shores of the oil rich Caspian Sea Through dramatic stories of unforgettable characters Kaplan illuminates the tragic history of this unstable area that he describes as the new fault line between East and West He ventures from Turkey Syria and Israel to the turbulent countries of the Caucasus from the newly rich city of Baku to the deserts of Turkmenistan and the killing fields of Armenia The result is must reading for anyone concerned about the state of our world in the decades to come, A fascinating unprecedented first hand look at the soldiers on the front lines on the Global War on Terror Plunging deep into midst of some of the hottest conflicts on the globe Robert D Kaplan takes us through mud and jungle desert and dirt to the men and women on the ground who are leading the charge against threats to American security These soldiers fighting in thick Colombian jungles or on dusty Afghani plains are the forefront of the new American foreign policy a policy being implemented one soldier at a time As Kaplan brings us inside their thoughts feelings and operations these modern grunts provide insight and understanding into the War on Terror bringing the war which sometimes seems so distant vividly to life, b b NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY i FINANCIAL TIMES br i b br From Robert D Kaplan named one of the world s Top Global Thinkers by i Foreign Policy i magazine comes a penetrating look at the volatile region that will dominate the future of geopolitical conflict b br br Over the last decade the center of world power has been quietly shifting from Europe to Asia With oil reserves of several billion barrels an estimated nine hundred trillion cubic feet of natural gas and several centuries worth of competing territorial claims the South China Sea in particular is a simmering pot of potential conflict The underreported military buildup in the area where the Western Pacific meets the Indian Ocean means that it will likely be a hinge point for global war and peace for the foreseeable future br br In i Asia s Cauldron i Robert D Kaplan offers up a vivid snapshot of the nations surrounding the South China Sea the conflicts brewing in the region at the dawn of the twenty first century and their implications for global peace and stability One of the world s most perceptive foreign policy experts Kaplan interprets America s interests in Asia in the context of an increasingly assertive China He explains how the region s unique geography fosters the growth of navies but also impedes aggression And he draws a striking parallel between China s quest for hegemony in the South China Sea and the United States imperial adventure in the Caribbean more than a century ago br br To understand the future of conflict in East Asia Kaplan argues one must understand the goals and motivations of its leaders and its people Part travelogue part geopolitical primer i Asia s Cauldron i takes us on a journey through the region s boom cities and ramshackle slums from Vietnam where the superfueled capitalism of the erstwhile colonial capital Saigon inspires the geostrategic pretensions of the official seat of government in Hanoi to Malaysia where a unique mix of authoritarian Islam and Western style consumerism creates quite possibly the ultimate postmodern society and from Singapore whose benevolent autocracy helped foster an economic miracle to the Philippines where a different brand of authoritarianism under Ferdinand Marcos led not to economic growth but to decades of corruption and crime br br At a time when every day s news seems to contain some new story large or small that directly relates to conflicts over the South China Sea i Asia s Cauldron i is an indispensable guide to a corner of the globe that will affect all of our lives for years to come br br b Praise for i Asia s Cauldron i b br b b br i Asia s Cauldron i is a short book with a powerful thesis and it stands out for its clarity and good sense If you are doing business in China traveling in Southeast Asia or just obsessing about geopolitics you will want to read it b i The New York Times Book Review i b br br Kaplan has established himself as one of our most consequential geopolitical thinkers i Asia s Cauldron i is part treatise on geopolitics part travel narrative Indeed he writes in the tradition of the great travel writers b i The Weekly Standard i b br br Kaplan s fascinating book is a welcome challenge to the pessimists who see only trouble in China s rise and the hawks who view it as malign b i The Economist i b br br Muscular deeply knowledgeable Kaplan is an ultra realist who takes a non moralistic stance on questions of power and diplomacy b i Financial Times i b, In b Warrior Politics b the esteemed journalist and analyst Robert D Kaplan explores the wisdom of the ages for answers for today s leaders While the modern world may seem more complex and dangerous than ever before Kaplan writes from a deeper historical perspective to reveal how little things actually change Indeed as Kaplan shows us we can look to history s most influential thinkers who would have understood and known how to navigate today s dangerous political waters br br Drawing on the timeless work of Sun Tzu Thucydides Machiavelli Hobbes among others Kaplan argues that in a world of unstable states and an uncertain future it is increasingly imperative to wrest from the past what we need to arm ourselves for the road ahead Wide ranging and accessible b Warrior Politics b is a bracing book with an increasingly important message that challenges readers to see the world as it is not as they would like it to be
