Footnotes to History

This review almost didn't get written. After reading about the USS Abalonia, a ship built to serve as an independent nation, and which sank when launched in 1969, it was hard not to read about Araucania, a nation that bested both the Inca and the Spanish armies back in the 16th century. Then how to resist reading about the Auca Republic, a nation founded by escaped slaves in South America? Terse text with a bit of humor is used here to serve up fascinating tid-bits of trivia. Obscure countries and peoples, empires and republics expanding and then disappearing with nary a trace, they're all documented here. Well, maybe not all of them, but a heck of a lot of 'em are here, from A-Z (Abaco- Zoutpansberg). An extensive bibliography is included, as is a small page of links for further research. To paraphrase the old Lay's Potato Chip commercial, 'Bet you can't read just one'.
