The New York Times-bestselling author examines the borders that shape our world in "an incisive, meticulous survey of humanity's physical barriers" (Booklist, starred review).

The globe has always been a world of walls, from the Great Wall of China to Hadrian's Wall to the Berlin Wall. But a new age of isolationism is upon us, as evidenced by Britain's Brexit, and growing support for a US/Mexico border wall. China holds back Western culture with the great Firewall, while European countries erect barriers against immigrants, terrorism, and currency issues. In fact, more than a third of the world's nation-states have barriers along their borders.

In The Age of Walls, Tim Marshall examines how walls and borders have been shaping our political landscape for hundreds of years and how they figure in the diplomatic relations and geo-political events of today. Written in his brisk, inimitable style, he draws on his real life experiences as a reporter from hotspots around the globe, and provides an engaging context that is often missing from political discussion.
