Abstract
The article gives a profound analysis of two recent books written by the prominent American political scientists - R. Kaplan. The Revenge of Geography: What the Map Tells Us About Coming Conflicts and the Battle Against Fate? and Harm de Blij. Why Geography Matters More Than Ever, in which the authors consider the role of geography in both world politics and the development of world nations. The main attention is paid to the argument that emphasizes the role of country’s place on the globe in its economic, political and cultural fate.
