Dr. Alexandros Petersen is the author of  The World Island: Eurasian Geopolitics and The Fate of the West (Praeger: 2011), available at Amazon.  His current book project is China in Central Asia.

A sweeping, succinct and convincing argument for Transatlantic unity. With Europe’s energy needs increasing, the emergence of China, the uncertainty of Russia’s future, and NATO’s involvement in Afghanistan Petersen makes clear that we ignore Eurasia at our peril.  For those who want to understand the vital importance of Eurasia Petersen’s strategy could not have come at a better time.”
