Despite the loss of the French Empire, France and its former colonies are still bound by a common historical past. When news of the find is publicised, Mexican President Quauhtli Garza is forced to act. Wandering through the dark maze of tunnels beneath the mountains, they eventually emerge into a valley whose existence was unknown to the outside world. Clive Cussler, author of the celebrated Dirk Pitt novels Arctic Drift and Crescent Dawn, presents the second in the series following the adventures of treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo. The author analyses Nelson Mandela's stature in the wider English-speaking world where he is seen is a kind of demi-god or king.

The historical contact between France and its other worlds has given birth to new kinds of cross-cultural expressions in the arts, in literature, andin aesthetics, establishing interrelations and generating appropriations from both sides of the Hexagon frontier, highlighting the fluidity and the permeability of its cultural borders. Seen from this latter perspective, the book comes also as an interrogation of the inclusiveness or exclusiveness of the words francophone. The book illustrates how, in France and in its other worlds, that contact,its repercussions, and its memory are lived and expressed today in a variety of textual representations.

Internal frontiers are losing some of their key functions but there are many responses to the new situation, as a case study of French frontiers abundantly illustrates. Roodt situates the extreme social violence that has characterised South Africa since 1994 also within the ambit of its identity crisis. Seeking to go further than the simple comparison of policies, the book carefully examines the institutional context for policy implementation within which growth and development have proceeded in the regions.
