ID: 859219613

Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2013. First Edition. An exceptional copy; fine in an equally fine dust wrapper. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Literally as new.; 8vo 8"" - 9"" tall; 614 pages; Physical description; ix, 614 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations (black and white). ContentsPreface ; 1. 1770s ; 2. 1780-1820 ; 3. 1821-1838 ; 4. 1839-1843 ; 5. 1843-1895 ; 6. 1895-1906 ; 7. 1907-1912 ; 8. 1912-1918 ; 9. 1919-1926 ; 10. 1926-1928 ; 11. 1929-1930 ; 12. 1931-1933 ; 13. 1934-1936 ; 14. 1937-1938 ; 15. 1939-1941 ; 16. 1941-1945 ; 17. 1945-1947 ; 18. 1948-1951 ; 19. 1952-1956 ; 20. 1957-1960 ; 21. 1961-2012 ; Epilogue ; Endnotes ; Select Bibliography ; Index. For centuries it was suspected that there must be an undiscovered continent in the southern hemisphere. But explorers failed to find one. On his second voyage to the Pacific, Captain Cook sailed further south than any of his rivals but still failed to sight land. It was not until 1820 that the continent's frozen coast was finally sighted. Territorial rivalry intensified in the 1840s when British, American, and French expeditions sailed south to chart further portions of the continent that had come to be called Antarctica. For the nearly two centuries since, the race to claim exclusive possession of Antarctica has gripped the imagination of the world. Antarctica: A Biography is the first ever major international history of this forbidding continent - from the eighteenth century voyages of discovery to the fierce rivalries of today, as governments, scientists, environmentalists, and oil companies compete for control. On one level it is the story of explorers battling the elements in the most hostile place on earth as they strive for personal triumph, commercial gain, and national glory. On a deeper level, it is the story of nations seeking to incorporate the Antarctic into their own national stories - and to claim its frozen wastes as their own. David Day was a research fellow at Clare College, Cambridge, and Professor of Australian History at University College Dublin before taking up a Senior Research Fellowship at La Trobe University in Melbourne, where he is currently an Honorary Associate in the History Program. His many books include best-selling histories of the Second World War, biographies of Australian prime ministers, and a study of Winston Churchill and Robert Menzies that has been made into a television documentary. His books have won or been short-listed for several literary prizes, with his history of Australia, Claiming a Continent, winning the prestigious non-fiction prize at the Adelaide Festival. His last book, Conquest: How Societies Overwhelm Others (2008, also published by Oxford University Press), appeared to acclaim in Australia, Britain, and the United States, and has been translated into several languages. Subjects; History. Antarctica - Discovery and exploration. Antarctica - History. History of other lands ; Geographical discovery & exploration, Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2013
