Reviews

Hardings' background as a reference librarian is evident in the usefulness of Dead Countries...an informative reference tool for stamp enthusiasts. -- C. A. Smith, Ball State University * CHOICE *
...entries are accompanied by an illustration of a relevant postage stamp... * Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie *
Harding's citations in the entry epigraphs are at once whimsical and informative. His bibliography displays a similar mix of serious and fanciful...a useful reminder of the impermanence of political entities and an intriguing and well-organized compendium of historical lore. * AB Bookman's Weekly *
The entries are enhanced with apt quotations from explorers, travelers, or other writers who mention the place. * Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie *
The whole 'dead' area is ripe for debate and this book is a good starting point. * Scott Stamp Monthly *
...informative and could serve the historian or author well... * American Reference Books Annual *
What an enviable project and how commendable that he should have found a publisher prepared to carry it forward...fairly bulges with fascinating facts emerging from Harding's comprehensive research....In his preface, Harding writes of attempting to combine the usefulness of a reference book with the stimulus of a book that is fun and interesting to read. He has succeeded in spades. * Reference Reviews *
...offers a unique slant on world politics and geography through a look at stamp collecting...one that many will find compelling... * Against the Grain *
...this is the best book of its kind and auseful addition to any philatelic library. * Canadian Stamp News *
