In his foreword to this Arbitrary Borders series, former Senator George Mitchell comments that trade and immigration typically undermine arbitrary borders. Adding globalization to the list of factors eroding territorial boundaries, Cottrell (history, California State U., Chico) traces the history of Czechoslovakia from prehistoric settlements to the non-violent revolution ending Communist rule in 1989 and establishment of the Czech Republic in 1993 under democratically elected President Havel. The volume includes some illustrations, a timeline, and a 2004 UN map. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
