Review

'Parag Khanna has vision' (Nassim Nicholas Taleb)

'Incredible . . . We don't often question the typical world map that hangs on the walls of classrooms-a patchwork of yellow, pink and green that separates the world into more than two hundred nations. But Parag Khanna, a global strategist, says that this map is, essentially, obsolete. . . . With the world rapidly changing and urbanizing, [Khanna's] proposals might be the best way to confront a radically different future' (Washington Post)

'Clear and coherent . . . Khanna provides a rare account of the physical infrastructure of globalization. . . . Khanna also provides a well-researched account of how companies are weaving ever more complicated supply chains that pull the world together even as they squeeze out inefficiencies. . . . [He] has succeeded in demonstrating that the forces of globalization are winning the battle for connected space, building tunnels, bridges and pipelines at an astonishing pace' (Adrian Woolridge Wall Street Journal)

'For those who fear that the world is becoming too inward-looking, Connectography is a refreshing, optimistic vision' (The Economist)

'Khanna imagines a near-future in which infrastructural and economic connections supersede traditional geopolitical coordinates as the primary means of navigating our world. He makes a persuasive case: Connectography is as compelling and richly expressive as the ancient maps from which it draws its inspiration' (Sir Martin Sorrell, Founder and CEO, WPP)

'This is probably the most global book ever written. It is intensely specific while remaining broad and wide. Its takeaway is that infrastructure is destiny: follow the supply lines outlined in this book to see where the future flows' (Kevin Kelly, Senior Maverick Wired)

'Reading Connectography is a real adventure. The expert knowledge of Parag Khanna has produced a comprehensive and fascinating book anchored in geography but extending out to every field that connects people around the globe. His deep insight into communications, logistics and the many other globally critical areas is remarkable' (Mark Mobius, Executive Chairman, Templeton Emerging Markets Group)

'From Lagos, Mumbai, Dubai and Singapore to the Amazon, the Himalayas, the Arctic and the Gobi desert steppe, Parag Khanna's latest book provides an invaluable guide to the volatile, confusing worlds of early twenty-first-century geopolitics. A provocative remapping of contemporary capitalism based on planetary mega-infrastructures, inter-continental corridors of connectivity and transnational supply chains rather than traditional political borders' (Neil Brenner, Director, Urban Theory Lab, Harvard University Graduate School of Design)

'In high style, Parag Khanna reimagines the world through the lens of globally connected supply-chain networks. It is a world still fraught with perils - old and new - but one ever more likely to nurture peace and sustain progress' (John Arquilla, United States Naval Postgraduate School)

'To get where you want to go, it helps to have a good map. In Connectography, Parag Khanna surveys the economic, political and technological landscape and lays out the case for why "competitive connectivity" - with cities and supply chains as the vital nodes - is the true arms race of the twenty-first century. This bold reframing is an exciting addition to our ongoing debate about geopolitics and the future of globalization' (Dominic Barton, Global Managing Partner, McKinsey & Company)

Book Description

An ever-increasing proliferation of cross-border connectivity, between people, companies, cities and nations, is reshaping the world for ever
