Robert Kaplan on Egypt
America’s most intrepid and far-traveled foreign correspondent, Robert Kaplan, has a new piece up on Foreign Affairs about the revolt in Egypt. (HT: RealClearWorld).
If you haven’t yet read Kaplan’s new Monsoon: The Indian Ocean and the Future of American Power, do so soon. It covers countries that border the Indian Ocean, and if you think our grasp of Egyptian circumstances is limited, it seems sophisticated next to our lack of knowledge of these countries crucial to the next century.
