Robert D. Kaplan

Robert Kaplan, writer for Atlantic Monthly, and one of my favorite non-fiction authors was on BookTV today. The did an in-depth interview with him. I turned it on in the middle and watched about an hour of it. It made me want to reread all of his books along with Herodotus, Tacitus, Gibbon, and Runciman. If you are interested in the current political situation, read WARRIOR POLITICS and THE COMING ANARCHY. THE COMING ANARCHY was the first of his that I read, and I've picked up all of his books since then. Many of them are travel books, but they delve into the politics and history of the area he's visiting. He's a fascinating writer, and shrewd in his analysis. Stop staring at the screen, go to your local independent book store and buy some Robert D. Kaplan.
