Redrawing the Globe

Screen Shot 2012-09-25 at 10.21.27 PM

The New York Times has a terrific feature on the emergence of a new nation states across the globe:

new countries will not be the product of a single political change or conflict, as was the post-Soviet proliferation, nor will they be confined to a specific region. If anything, they are linked by a single, undeniable fact: history chews up borders with the same purposeless determination that geology does, as seaside villas slide off eroding coastal cliffs. Here is a map of what could possibly be the world’s newest international borders.
