In Europe, the explosive combination of politics and migration threatens liberal democracy itself.; Covering China; the USA; Israel and Palestine; the Middle East; the Indian Subcontinent; Africa; Europe and the UK, in this gripping read bestselling author Tim Marshall delves into our past and our present to reveal the fault lines that will shape our world for years to come.

Divided Reviews

***** "Informative and timely ... a readable primer on the world's biggest problems" -- Daily Express; "A timely and exhilarating clamber over the walls of history" -- Peter Frankopan, author of The Silk Roads; "Accomplished, well researched and pacey ... 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; "Accessible and timely ... ultimately, Marshall's lesson is one that we should all heed: differences can be overcome" -- Prospect; "A very knowledgeable, timely book and a good primer on current problems in a longer-term context" -- Irish News; "Perceptive ... Marshall examines the walls - physical, religious, ethnic, psychological - that fence people off or, at times, pen them in... He has written frankly about the world. We deny this at our own peril" -- The National; "Striking words ... Tim Marshall performs the daunting, yet highly pertinent, task of trying to make sense of one of the biggest issues of our times: in a world that is increasingly globalised, a backlash apparently grows ever stronger. By taking a global view, Divided successfully brings some much-needed perspective" - --Northern Slant
