Tony Wheeler's Badlands

A Witty First-Hand Account of Tony Wheeler's Travels to Rogue Countries

By Lonely Planet | in eBooks

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. With additional excursions to places that are slightly misguided, midly malevolent, seriously off course, extraordinarily reclusive. and much misunderstood, the second version of this popular title is well worth a read!
