Description: Focusing on unusual international border shapes, this fascinating book highlights the important truth that all borders, even those that appear _natural,_ were created by people. The unique and compelling histories of some of the world's oddest borders provide an ideal context for accessible and enlightening discussions of cultural globalization, economic integration, international migration, imperialism, post-colonialism, global terrorism, nationalism, and supranationalism. Each contributor's regional expertise enriches a textured and poignant account of the historical context in which these borders came into existence as well as their historical and ongoing influence on the people and states they bound.
