Tim Marshall can summarise the world in a nutshell. His runaway bestseller Prisoners of Geography effortlessly rewrote our understanding of nationhood, and now Divided turns to the sometimes invisible fences and walls that separate culture and belief. There is hope here too, however: for every division a bridge, and in every enemy a future friend. Concise and brilliantly perceptive.
