The Return of Marco Polo's World
As Europe disappears, Asia coheres. The supercontinent is becoming one fluid, comprehensible unit of trade and conflict, as the Westphalian system of states weakens and older, imperial legacies – Russian, Chinese, Iranian, Turkish – become paramount. Please join the Simon Chair's Reconnecting Asia Project for a conversation with Robert D. Kaplan about his new book, The Return of Marco Polo's World: War, Strategy, and American Interests in the Twenty-first Century, to discuss how Eurasia's coherence impacts the U.S. ability to influence the power balance in Eurasia.
