The book "World Enclaves - Travel through territorial oddities" is the third part of a geopolitical trilogy that began with separation walls and border bridges.
In political geography, enclaves are a part of the territory of a state located inside another belonging to a given country but located geographically in another, usually neighboring, country. An enclave can be separated from its main territory by one or more states. The term exclave is then sometimes used to describe it. This term is also used for enclaves with a seafront. But an enclave can also be considered as such by the country which surrounds it and as an exclave by the country to which it is attached: for example, the German enclave of Büsingen-am-Hohrhein is considered by Switzerland as an enclave (in its national territory) and by Germany as an exclave (outside its national territories). These pieces of territory constitute both unknown places, fractures of our globalized world and places cut off from “their” world and their country. The people who live there are cut off from their motherland by foreign countries; they are citizens of a state that is far away.
This book uses the same configuration as the two other ones: 9 cases of enclaves and a general introduction that revisits the theory of enclaves and tries to find common features that connect that diversity of world’s enclaves.
