From the publisher’s description:

This full color reference book is an entertaining and informative look at contemporary struggles for independence around the world. The separatist, nationalist, and independence movements described range from serious and violent to cheeky and imaginative, collectively revealing the passion that people feel about their identity and roots in a globalized world. This book will be a pleasure to anyone who is fascinated by geography and the world's cultures. The author's depth of knowledge and sense of humor are a unique combination. Includes maps and illustrations.
