P&P Live! Bruce Jones —To Rule The Waves – in conversation with Evan Osnos

2 min read

Now, in bright, closely observed prose, To Rule The Waves author Bruce Jones conducts us on a fascinating voyage through the great modern ports and naval bases of this era—from the vast container ports of Shanghai and Hong Kong to the vital naval base of the American 7th fleet in Hawaii to the sophisticated security arrangements in the port of New York. Along the way, the book illustrates how global commerce works, that we are amidst a global naval arms race, and why the oceans are so crucial to America’s standing going forward.

He has lived and worked in Asia, Africa, and Europe, including serving with UN operations in Kosovo and the Middle East.

He has been a senior advisor to the World Bank, and lectured or been a non-resident fellow at Princeton, Stanford, Yale, and New York University.

Jones will be in conversation with Evan Osnos, a staff writer at The New Yorker since 2008.
