More than 70% of the world’s population lives in an area that is destabilizing in a way not seen since the years leading up to World War II. A ‘cradle of disorder’ stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific, with crises plaguing Europe, Russia, the Middle East, and Asia.

It began with the financial crisis of 2008. Economic malaise threatened political cohesion and social stability across the Eurasian landmass, fueling worrisome developments such as rising nationalism in Europe, an increasingly belligerent Russia, and Saudi Arabia's lost ability to manage jihadist threats. Now these—and many other—regional crises are beginning to merge and interact.

In Crisis & Chaos: Are We Moving Toward World War III? Geopolitical Futures founder and renowned intelligence expert George Friedman discusses the ominous pattern of events that is calling up the ghosts of wars past… and reveals what is waiting for all of us in the troubling times ahead.
