Mankind’s Great Divides
By (author) George R. Mitchell
Although the mid-90s brought about the deconstruction of communist frontiers, they have remained erect in the imagination. Mitchell investigates borders, and their impact on the landscape, in conjunction with the mindset of the population. With frank and in-depth interviews with refugees, security personnel, people who have had family members killed, people who currently live in fear, and people who have killed…The notion of ‘other’ is thus applied in an interrogation of the ways in which, physical borders manifest in national identity.
Reviews of Mankind’s Great Divides
George R. Mitchell
George Mitchell was a professional dance teacher for 20 years, which took him to nearly 80 counties. In 1993, he participated in a dance exchange to Russia. Being present in Russia following the collapse of the USSR induced a fascination with borders and frontiers. This visit outside of the Western sphere gave him a taste for more, and he has since abandoned the dance world and travelled as far as his bank balance permits, and writes a weekly column for the P&G. With limited journalistic background his first book provides an authentic approach out-with the influence of established foreign correspondents.
