* * * SOLD OUT * * * The Future of Geography with Tim Marshall

March 4 @ 20:00 22:00

We are delighted to bring you an evening, at the Old Woollen, with British journalist, broadcaster and author Tim Marshall. Tim will be talking about his latest book, The Future of Geography.

If you’ve ever wondered if humans are going back to the Moon, who will benefit from explorations, will Musk and Bezos’ space race ambitions ever come to fruition, the answers are here.

Space is the new frontier, a wild and lawless place. It is already central to communication, military strategy and international relations on Earth. Now, it is the latest arena for human exploration, exploitation – and, possibly, conquest. With China, the USA and Russia leading the way, the next fifty years will change the face of global politics.

With all the insight and wit that have made Tim Marshall the UK’s most popular writer on geopolitics, this gripping book shows that politics and geography are as important in the skies as on the ground, covering great-power rivalry; technology; commerce; combat in space; and what it all means for us down on Earth.

Tim Marshall is a leading authority on foreign affairs with more than 30 years of reporting experience. He  as 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 Israel. He is the author of the No. 1 Sunday Times bestsellers Prisoners of  Geography: Ten Maps that Tell You Everything You Need to Know About Global Politics (which has sold over 2 million copies worldwide) and The Power of Geography: Ten Maps that Reveal the Future of Our  World.
