A bracing assessment of US foreign policy and world disorder over the past two decades from the bestselling author of The Revenge of Geography and The Coming Anarchy.“[Kaplan] has emerged not only as an eloquent defender of foreign-policy realism but as a grand strategist to whom the Pentagon turns for a tour d’horizon.” (The Wall Street Journal)In the late 13th century, Marco Polo began a decades-long trek from Venice to China along the trade route between Europe and Asia known as the Silk Road - a foundation of Kublai Khan’s sprawling empire. Now, in the early 21st century, the Chinese regime has proposed a land-and-maritime Silk Road that duplicates exactly the route Marco Polo traveled. Drawing on decades of firsthand experience as a foreign correspondent and military embed for The Atlantic, Robert D. Kaplan outlines the timeless principles that should shape America’s role in a turbulent world that encompasses the Chinese challenge. From Kaplan’s immediate thoughts on President Trump to a frank examination of what will happen in the event of war with North Korea, these essays are a vigorous reckoning with the difficult choices the US will face in the years ahead.Praise for The Return of Marco Polo’s World:“Elegant and humane...[a] prophecy from an observer with a depressingly accurate record of predictions.” (Bret Stephens, The New York Times Book Review)“These essays constitute a truly pathbreaking, brilliant synthesis and analysis of geographic, political, technological, and economic trends with far-reaching consequences. The Return of Marco Polo’s World is another work by Robert D. Kaplan that will be regarded as a classic.” (General David Petraeus, US Army, Ret.)“Thoughtful, unsettling, but not apocalyptic analyses of world affairs flow steadily off the presses, and this is a superior example....

Die Siege des Wortes über die Macht."Die Geschichte der Verbote ist eine Geschichte vom Überleben", befand Werner Fuld und schrieb die weltweit erste Universalgeschichte der verbotenen Bücher.Gibt die Nachwelt jedem verbotenen Buch die ihm gebührende Würde zurück, wie Tacitus angesichts einer Bücherverbrennung vor 2000 Jahren prophezeite? Oder lassen die Flammen gar manche Schrift erst in hellem Licht erstrahlen, die sonst im Dunkeln geblieben wäre? Ovid wurde von Kaiser Augustus im Jahre 13 n. Chr. verbannt, auf dem Vatikanischen Index fanden sich zwar Kant und Gregorovius, nie jedoch Hitler, Lenin oder Marx. Mit ihnen befasst sich Fuld ebenso wie mit erotischer und ketzerischer Literatur, mit den Schwarzen Listen unter den Nazis, in der DDR und natürlich auch in der BRD, wo Texte als "staatsgefährdende Schriften" verboten wurden, die als kommunistisch eingestuft wurden oder Kritik an der Bundesregierung oder den Alliierten übten. Noch heute werden hierzulande im Schnitt jährlich 300 Bücher verboten, 1995 etwa Bret Easton Ellis' Weltbestseller American Psycho, der erst 2001, nach mehreren Gerichtsverfahren, freigegeben wurde. Fast alle großen Klassiker, von Goethes Werther über Flauberts Madame Bovary und Prousts Récherche bis Joyces Ulysses oder Nabokovs_ Lolita_ (zuerst in einem pornographischen französischen Verlag erschienen, weil niemand sonst es drucken wollte), haben z. T. turbulente Verbotsgeschichten aufzuweisen. Doch Fuld widmet sich nicht nur der westlichen Welt. Auch China, Russland und die islamischen Länder hat er im Fokus. Weltweit ist die Liste verbotener Bücher schier endlos, und ständig kommen neue hinzu. Grund genug, ihnen und ihrer Geschichte endlich ein eigenes Buch zu widmen.
