In an age of plastic knives on planes, Tony Wheeler can make the extraordinary claim of having visited all the rogue countries currently on newsreaders'' lips. Bad Lands is a witty first-hand account of his travels through places often perceived as having some of the most repressive and dangerous regimes in the world: Afghanistan, Albania, Burma, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea and Saudi Arabia. Taking into account each country''s attitude to human rights, terrorism and foreign policy, he asks ''what makes a country truly evil?'' and ''how bad is really bad?'' - all the while engaging with a colourful cast of locals and hapless tour guides, ruminating on history and debunking popular myths.
Written by the founder of Lonely Planet, this fascinating account of life in these closed-off countries will appeal to anyone with an interest in the state of the world today.
