Published: Pantheon Books - September 6th, 2016

I seldom encounter academic cultural criticism. If the purpose of cultural criticism is inform/outrage/irritate/excite us, and academia's function too often seems to bewilder one with jargon, the two are uneasily conflated. Greif resists such a division, and his essays give us the rare treat of clear writing--a sign of clear thinking--probing deeply into issues about which there is much talk, but rarely enough thought. Clever, articulate, and insightful: the kind of voice you wish appeared in every social conversation.

Could a single chain of mountains keep a country from achieving prosperity? Could war break out over a single dam on The Nile? You wouldn't think a book about geopolitics would be the engaging page-turner that it is. Why couldn't geography have been like this when I was in school?
