At a time when global politics and co-operation have never been more important, who better to guide us through than bestselling author of Prisoners of Geography, Tim Marshall.

Regulars at Mainstreet may remember the brilliant talk he gave us a few years back, we are delighted to welcome him back (albeit online) on Thurs 6th May to celebrate publication of his new book, The Power of Geography.

Find out why Europe’s next refugee crisis is closer than it thinks as trouble brews in the Sahel; why the Middle East must look beyond oil and sand to secure its future; why the eastern Mediterranean is one of the most volatile flashpoints of the twenty-first century; and why the Earth’s atmosphere is set to become the world’s next battleground.

Delivered with his trademark wit and insight, this is a lucid and gripping exploration of the power of geography to shape humanity’s past, present – and future.

Tim Marshall is a leading authority on foreign affairs with more than 30 years of reporting experience. He was diplomatic editor at Sky News, and before that was working for the BBC and LBC/IRN radio. He has reported from 40 countries and covered conflicts in Croatia, Bosnia, Macedonia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and Libya.
