Acclaimed travel writer and Oxford geography don Nick Middleton takes us on an eye-opening tour of a hidden world from the pages of his latest book. These are wannabe and might-have-been countries that, lacking diplomatic recognition or UN membership, inhabit a realm of shifting borders, idealistic leaders and forgotten peoples.
