Shortlisted for the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards. The Atlas of Unusual Borders is the perfect gift for history or geography buffs. It’s a firm favourite here at LitVox.
This beautifully designed book presents unusual borders, enclaves and exclaves, divided or non-existent cities and islands.
Numerous conflicts have left countries divided and often shattered. Remnants of countries can by design or accident be left behind as a legal anomaly in this complex world. This book tells those countries’ stories.
Most people believe that a country’s borders are clearly defined: just lines that divide countries. Everything on one side of the line belongs to one country and everything on the other side belongs to another. This might be the case some of the time, but there are many exceptions to this unwritten rule.
About the Author
Born in an area of constant political change in what was once Yugoslavia and is now Serbia, Zoran Nikolic saw the impact political change had on people’s daily lives. This interest in geography extended outside Eastern Europe and became a lifetime fascination with borders and political geography.
