Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Spykman said in this book, page 150:
"Who controls the Rimland rules Eurasia. Who rules Eurasia controls the destinies of the World."
Rimlands are the coastal areas of Eurasia and North Africa etc.

A very useful book, which has affected American diplomacy until nowadays.
