Pick up an old stamp album and flick through it. You’ll find a host of exotic and unfamiliar names: Cyrenaica, Fernando Poo, Fiume, North Ingria, Obock, Priamur, Stellaland, Tuva, Wenden – distant lands, vanished territories, lost countries. Do they still exist? If not, where were they? What happened to them? Lost Countries goes in search of the truth about these and many other amazing places.Stuart Laycock and Chris West unearth stories of many kinds. Some take you to long-disappeared empires; others throw light on today’s most pressing conflicts. Lost Countries invites you to enjoy them all, in a collection of historical narratives as broad and enticing as an old stamp album that you’ve just discovered in the attic.
