In the year to mid-2011, the pace of history quickened. Strategic Survey 2011: The Annual Review of World Affairs assesses the major events of the last twelve months, and what a twelve months we have had! This year's edition includes a special chapter on the Arab Awakening, in which protests against autocratic rule spread like wildfire across the Arab world, toppling the leaders of Tunisia and Egypt and bringing conflict elsewhere. There is coverage of the earthquake and tsunami that killed thousands in Japan, and triggered the worst nuclear accident for 25 years. And a daring raid into Pakistan by American special forces killed Osama bin Laden but caused fury in Islamabad.
Strategic Survey 2011 includes a chronology of the year's events, essays on important issues, and a Strategic Geography section giving vital data on key issues - such as extreme weather and European sovereign debt - in map form. The book also includes region-by-region chapters analyzing all the year's strategic developments.
There is high praise of the title from Bronwen Maddox, Editor of Prospect magazine, who remarks that Strategic Survey 'has become a landmark of the think tank landscape: a handbook for what to worry about for the coming year.'
Strategic Survey 2011 will be published on the 6th of September and can be pre-ordered today. Alternatively, you can recommend the book to your librarian. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on +44 (0) 20 701 76566.
