About this deal

La risposta non si trova a Bruxelles, ma nelle enclave dimenticate d'Europa: piccoli frammenti di un Paese completamente circondate da un altro. The "curiosities" of the 59 locations are mostly administrative ones, dictated by unusual geography as influenced by historical incidents. Vitaliev is the Ukranian-born cultural commentator, author and journalist whose life has been spent exploring the curious, the unusual and the plain dotty manifestations of human life around the world. If you are a geography fan, a history fan or someone who likes weird, interesting facts, try this book.

Welcome to this hardback compendium of interesting, unexpected and downright bizarre geographical anomalies that are guaranteed to delight and inspire. Starting his career in the former USSR, where he became known as the country's first investigative journalist, he was forced to defect in January 1990. Each entry starts with a map (naturally), and then a page or two of explanatory text, detailing how the curiosity came to be. It is perhaps more a book for armchair reading than to inspire wanderlust, although I have to confess that I have added one or two places to my bucket list as a result of reading it!

The photos are a nice inclusion, though would be better with captions, so we know what we're looking at. There were a lot of facts in here I did not know, and reading about all these extraordinary places was fun.
