Summary

Geography Is Destiny tells the history of Britain and its changing relationships with Europe and the wider world, from its physical separation at the end of the Ice Age to the first flickers of a United Kingdom, struggles for the Atlantic and rise of the Pacific Rim.

Applying the latest archaeological evidence, Ian Morris explores how geography, migration, government and new technologies interacted to produce regional inequalities that still affect us today. He charts Britain's geopolitical fortunes over thousands of years, revealing its transformation from a European satellite into a state at the centre of global power, commerce and culture. But as power and wealth shift from West to East, does Britain's future lie with Europe or the wider world?

A book that most people would benefit listening too

Concise, amusing and massively informative potted history of this once great country. Makes you realise the loops never end.
