Pepe Escobar’s latest e-book Shadow Play

I have the pleasure to welcome you to the first in a series of e-books recovering the Pepe Escobar archives on Asia Times.

The archives track a period of 20 years – starting with the columns and stories published under The Roving Eye sign in the previous Asia Times Online from 2001 all the way to early 2015.

The Roving Eye was all over the place – but mostly follow-ing the War on Terror, and digging deeper in Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Greater Middle East, Central Asia, China, and the interplay of all these actors with the US. I was back with the new Asia Times in early 2017 – right at the start of the Trump administration.

The columns selected for the first e-book in this series start before the Trump inauguration and proceed, in chronological order, to July 2020. They focus on the complex interaction between Top Three geopolitical actors Russia, China and the US. You may read them as a thriller – as you will be reviving all the plot twists and cliffhangers involving the players.
