The Age of Walls: How Barriers Between Nations Are Changing Our World (Politics of Place

Tim Marshall

Tim Marshall, the New York Times bestselling author of Prisoners of Geography, offers a readable primer to many of the biggest problems facing the world (Daily Express, UK) by examining the borders, walls, and boundaries that divide countries and their populations. The globe has always been a world of walls, from the Great Wall of China to Hadrians Wall to the Berlin Wall. But a new age of isolationism and economic nationalism is upon us, visible in Trumps obsession with building a wall on the Mexico border, in Britains Brexit vote, and in many other places as well. China has the great Firewall, holding back Western culture. Europes countries are walling themselves against immigrants, terrorism, and currency issues. South Africa has heavily gated communities, and massive walls or fences separate people in the Middle East, Korea, Sudan, India, and other places around the world. In fact, more than a third of the worlds nation-states have barriers along their borders. Understanding what is behind these divisions is essential to understanding much of whats going on in the world today. Written in Tim Marshalls brisk, inimitable style, The Age of Walls is divided by geographic region. He provides an engaging context that is often missing from political discussion and draws on his real life experiences as a reporter from hotspots around the globe. He examines how walls, borders, and barriers have been shaping our political landscape for hundreds of years, and especially since 2001, and how they figure in the diplomatic relations and geo-political events of today. Marshall is a skilled explainer of the world as it is, and geography buffs will be pleased by his latest (Kirkus Reviews). Accomplished, well researched, and pacey...The Age of Walls is for anyone who wants to look beyond the headlines and explore the context of some of the biggest challenges facing the world today, it is a fascinating and fast read (City AM, UK)

In 2015, borders and walls seemed to burst onto the global agenda in the context of migration and halting spontaneous movement. Countries as diverse as Austria, Bulgaria, Estonia, Hungary, Kenya, Saudi Arabia, and Tunisia announced or began work on new border barriers. These walls, and many more, as well as like notable man-made barriers and the walled cities, are a witness of the world history, and stand to tell many tales.
