Since its invention a century and a half ago, barbed wire has left a trail of blood in its wake. First developed to keep livestock in or out, it was swiftly put to use to divide humanity into the haves and the have nots. If Google Maps were honest, it would show barbed wire everywhere – in combat zones, along national borders, around ranches, schools, and prisons. For my recent book, I took a look at how things got to this point: a brief history of the Devil’s Rope.
