Great travel and geo-political writing. Kaplan travels on the ground, with the local people, and talks to people who matter. His analysis is always grounded in history. He's always on the gloomy side ... Read full review

Review: The Ends of the Earth: A Journey to the Frontiers of Anarchy

User Review  - Chris Thorsrud - Goodreads

Kaplan takes the reader to various corners of the world where different levels of anarchy exist. The book was written over 17 years ago, I wonder how these same places are now.

Written in the mid-1990s, the author toured Africa, Turkey and the Caucasus, Iran, and South Asia and reports on his findings. He was somewhat prophetic in some of his observations, but I prefer his ... Read full review
