This is a guide to significant disputes worldwide, covering all existing official disputes between governments, as well as situations where unofficial or popular aspirations to territorial change exist. Disputes currently dormant are also examined to ensure that readers are able to research the background to a dispute that may suddenly flare up. Highlights of the new edition include the appearance of new international boundaries between former republics of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia. The text is arranged alphabetically in five sections covering broad geographical areas: Europe; Africa; the Middle East; Asia, the Far East and the Pacific; and the Americas and Antarctica. The historical background is provided for each dispute, and to aid understanding, each description is illustrated by a map showing the particular border or territory at issue.
