Flash Points by George Friedman

This book's full title is Flash Points: The Emerging Crisis in Europe. Here he talks about Europe. George Friedman is always interesting. He has very settled points of view and you may or may not agree with him. He certainly makes you think about what is going on in the world. He is a bit of an alarmist.

However, there is a lot of unsettling news coming from Europe lately. They seem to be in quite a mess, especially financially. Russian seems to be pushy. You have to wonder how all this might turn out. That is why this book caught my interest.

As usual there are some very good reviews at Good Reads. Peter Szopo onIntellinews has written a good review on this book. Brad McMillan posted a good review of this book at the Independent Market Observer.

You can also get a peek at what Stratfor provides here.

George Friedman speaks at the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs. He speaks about 45 minutes into this secession and then there is a Q and A. This was a wonder speech and well worth watching. This is a speech by George Friedman on c-span. It is basically the same speech as the one at Carnegie Council. I have included it because there is a written transcribe of the speech. This is an interesting 6 minute video of MSNBC's interviewing George Friedman.

Also, an index of the books I have reviewed are on my website at Books. Follow me on Twitter.
