Simon Winchester: The Pacific Ocean's Transformative Future says
In Atlantic, journalist Simon Winchester (The Men Who United the States) explored the beauty of its ecologically fascinating waters–now, he’s turned his focus on the world’s largest ocean. Pacific is a history of the West Coast’s major cities (including Seattle) and how their relationship to water has played an important role in the advancement of world technology and politics. From the booming industries of Silicon Valley, to modern tensions between North and South Korea, Winchester will describe the range of changes occurring wherever the Pacific’s tides flow. He’ll explain why–unlike countries bordering the Atlantic–those on the Pacific are just beginning their histories. By offering a look at its present, he’ll also offer his opinion on the shifting nature of its future–and how the players he’s encountered have the power to make or break global tensions.
