Dangerous Destinations: A Traveller's Guide to the World's Trouble Spots (Paperback)
This pocket guide for the serious traveller or journalist covers the world's most dangerous travel destinations, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. Each destination has a concise, but detailed, historical background to the causes of conflict, with information about what has happened, what is currently happening, attempts to resolve the situation and what the future may hold. The authors do not attempt to criticize or offer answers, concentrating instead on the advantages and disadvantages of possible options. They also assess the likelihood of violence spreading from the original outbreak. Advice on travel safety from organizations such as the Foreign Office and Commonwealth Office is supported with maps of the area and a comprehensive list of useful websites for further information. This book should also appeal to the general reader.
