Tell Us: What did you learn from your atlas?

In the January newsletter (join the campaign now to receive our monthly e-newsletter) we challenged readers to get an atlas and use it like a dictionary of the world.

Tell Us: What’s the most surprising fact you learned from your atlas?

I learned that the newest country was Montenegro, which declared independence from Serbia in 2006. As of this week, however, that information is old, well, news. On Sunday, February 17, 2008 Kosovo followed suit and declared its own independence from Serbia to become the new, newest country. The Declaration remains hotly contested, with the world’s powers divided in accepting the new nation. Look for an upcoming feature on the event and the raging debate.
