Greedy Lords, Dubious heroes, wicked relations and innocents in peril—today’s world sounds like a grim fairytale.

Travelling along the infamous ‘Axis of Evil’ led to Tony Wheeler’s Bad Lands-- now he’s going deeper into the world’s darkest corners to explore a rogue’s gallery of troubled nations.

Every country has its problems, but some problems seem so vexed, so intractable, so absurd, you can only shake your head. Tony Wheeler trains his well-travelled eyes on some of these places and attempts to understand how things got so messed up. Along the way he gets stoned (with the thrown variety) in Palestine, scores a speeding ticket in Zimbabwe, gets arrested for photographing a bar in the Congo, and visits Osama bin Laden s Abbottabad in Pakistan. Join Tony and find out if there s a happily-ever-after in these takes from the dark side.

Publishers Weekly, December 16, 2013 There are plenty of tips and warnings for visitors about things like photography, malaria outbreaks, and lodgings, but it is Wheeler's sensible thoughts on topics like demographics, the consequences of colonialism, and drone strikes that are most useful for the perspective they provide.
