內容簡介


人類揮舞旗子、焚燒旗子,甚至為旗子而死。
在每一面旗子的背後,究竟存在著什麼特殊涵意,又如何反應國際政治?


《紐約時報》暢銷書《用十張地圖看懂全球政經局勢》作者提姆‧馬歇爾新作,全面解析旗子的歷史、權力與政治!

旗子的顏色與圖案,都有其特殊涵意。旗子可能激發強烈情感、敵意或遭到濫用;旗子可能團結人群、也可能分裂人群。

本書以九個章節,分別介紹全球七大地區的國旗:美國、英國、中東、亞洲、非洲、中南美洲,加上各項國際組織與恐怖組織的代表旗,藉由探討這些旗子的歷史與象徵意義,分析全球政治、歷史、文化與種族。作者綜合當今全球歷史與國際政治現況,藉由旗子的歷史與象徵,解析國際政治與權力運作。想了解當今國際事件背後意義的讀者,絕對不能錯過!

When you see your nation's flag fluttering in the breeze, what do you feel?; For thousands of years flags have represented our hopes and dreams. We wave them. Burn them. March under their colours. And still, in the 21st century, we die for them. Flags fly at the UN, on the Arab street, from front porches in Texas.

They represent the politics of high power as well as the politics of the mob.; From the renewed sense of nationalism in China, to troubled identities in Europe and the USA, to the terrifying rise of Islamic State, the world is a confusing place right now and we need to understand the symbols, old and new, that people are rallying round.; In nine chapters (covering the USA, UK, Europe, Middle East, Asia, Africa, Latin America, international flags and flags of terror), Tim Marshall draws on more than twenty-five years of global reporting experience to reveal the histories, the power and the politics of the symbols that unite us - and divide us.
