Divided Living in an Age of Walls

Thousands of miles of fences and barriers have been erected since the turn of the century which have redefined our political landscape. Tim Marshall brings his trademark engaging and relatable style to examine the divisions caused by wealth, race, religion and politics.


Talk of Donald Trump’s plans for a border wall with Mexico and the ongoing debate about Europe’s Schengen Agreement are symbolic of a wider, often heated, global discussion about borders, immigration and cultural change. Nationalism and identity politics are on the rise once more. Thousands of miles of fences and barriers have been erected since the turn of the century which have redefined our political landscape. Tim Marshall brings his own trademark engaging and relatable style to examine the divisions caused by wealth, race, religion and politics.

Tim Marshall is the author of several books including the international bestseller, Prisoners of Geography. He has been a journalist and broadcaster for over 30 years and is an established and respected media commentator on foreign affairs, regularly appearing on such channels as Sky News, BBC and LBC.
