The Revenge of Geography and Comparative Govt

It is not easy to be a teacher at the beginning of the school year.  Too many student names to learn and of course too many books to read.  One is Robert Kaplan's new book title The Revenge of Geography.  Here is a great article from the Wall Street Journal looking at geography and Iran, China and Russia.  So if you are a comparative teacher, you will want to read it. Thanks to Monte Bourjaily for the heads up.

Sorry, but this book is just full of incoherent nonsense: I could not go on reading it after detecting a handful of factual and logical flaws in the first couple of minutes of listening to Mr Kaplan.
