The acceleration of history - the geostrategic knots of a world out of control

Livre L’accélération de l’Histoire - les nœuds géostratégiques d’un monde hors de contrôle

A dual geopolitical and geo-economic acceleration is underway, against a backdrop of growing Sino-American rivalry, Sino-Russian rapprochement, the strengthening of NATO and the political emergence of the "global South". The author highlights the dangers of these pivotal areas, where vital trade is concentrated: the China Seas, with its flow of microprocessors through the Taiwan Strait; the Arabian Peninsula, with its continuous flow of hydrocarbons; and the eastern Mediterranean, where wheat transits. It sets out to link the simultaneous trajectories of Russia, Iran and North Korea, through which three potential nuclear crises combine.
