David Frye ◆ Chosen as Main Selection, History Book ClubIn Walls historian David Frye tells the epic story of historys greatest manmade barriers, from ancient times to the present It is a haunting and frequently eye opening saga one that reveals a startling link between what we build and how we live With Frye as our raconteur guide, we journey back to a time before barriers of brick and stone even existed to an era in which nomadic tribes vied for scarce resources, and each man was bred to a life of struggle Ultimately, those same men would create edifices of mud, brick, and stone, and with them effectively divide humanity on one side were those the walls protected on the other, those the walls kept out The stars of this narrative are the walls themselves rising up in places as ancient and exotic as Mesopotamia, Babylon, Greece, China, Rome, Mongolia, Afghanistan, the lower Mississippi and even Central America As we journey across time and place, we discover a hidden, thousand mile long wall in Asias steppes learn of bizarre Spartan rituals watch Mongol chieftains lead their miles long hordes witness the epic siege of Constantinople chill at the fate of French explorers marvel at the folly of the Maginot Line tense at the gathering crisis in Cold War Berlin gape at Hollywoods gated royalty and contemplate the wall mania of our own era A masterpiece of historical recovery and preeminent storytelling, Walls is alternately evocative, amusing, chilling, and deeply insightful as it gradually reveals the startling ways that barriers have affected our psyches The questions this book summons are both intriguing and profound Did walls make civilization possible And can we live without them The History of Walls Is Long Here s Where Donald TIME Trump plans to build a wall
