KAPLAN: ‘In Europe’s Shadow’
*In Europe’s Shadow is a riveting journey through (among other countries) Romania, one of Europe’s frontier countries
A potent examination of the forces that will determine Europe’s fate in the postmodern age. In Europe’s Shadow is the story of an ideological and geographic frontier, necessary to to truly understand the crisis with Russia, and within Europe itself. Kaplan will investigate at De Balie the current European crises. How should we look at the future of alliances such as the NATO? What does Kaplan think about European leadership? And what can we say about the frontier countries such as Romania – between Russia and the West?
After Kaplan’s keynote speech there will be a conversation with Paul Brill (journalist, De Volkskrant).
Robert D. Kaplan is the author of sixteen books on foreign affairs and travel translated into many languages, including In Europe’s Shadow, Asia’s Cauldron, The Revenge of Geography, Monsoon, Balkan Ghosts, and Eastward to Tartary.
