CENTER FOR STRATEGIC & INTERNATIONAL STUDIES
1616 RHODE ISLAND AVE NW, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036

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.

 

Featuring

Robert D. Kaplan

Author of The Return of Marco Polo's World
