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.
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.
