Event Description

In the late thirteenth century, Marco Polo began a decades-long trek from Venice to China. Now, in the early twenty-first century, the Chinese regime has proposed a land-and-maritime Silk Road that duplicates exactly the route Marco Polo traveled and is changing America's ability to influence the power balance in the region.

What are the principles that should shape America's role in a turbulent world?

Robert Kaplan is a senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security and a senior advisor at Eurasia Group. He is the best-selling author of The Revenge of Geography and The Coming Anarchy.
