The Long Space Age: The Economic Origins of Space Exploration from Colonial America to the Cold War

Alexander MacDonald

The Long Space Age: The Economic Origins of Space Exploration from Colonial America to the Cold War by Alexander MacDonaldAn economic historian argues that privately funded space exploration is not a new development, but a trend beginning with the astronomical observatories of the nineteenth century 

Over the last half-century there has been a rapid expansion in commerce off the surface of our planet. Nations and corporations have placed hundreds of satellites that provide billions of dollars' worth of communications, scientific, global positioning, and commercial services, while construction has been completed on humanity's ninth and largest space station. On the planet itself, government agencies, corporations,...

A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf: A radical nature-travelogue from the founder of national parks

John Muir

A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf: A radical nature-travelogue from the founder of national parks by John Muir

'Many a beautiful plant cultivated to deformity, and arranged in strict geometrical beds, the whole pretty affair a laborious failure side by side with divine beauty.'

A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf is the second book in John Muir's Wilderness-Discovery series. It is within this work that we are really given strong clues toward Muir's future trailblazing movement for environmental conservation, in such comments as 'The universe would be incomplete without man; but it would also be incomplete without the smallest transmicroscopic creature that dwells beyond our conceitful eyes and knowledge.'...

Speed Bump Himalayas

Mark Giblin

"Only go home when you're half mad, half dead, or both."It's 1987, and Mark Giblin has just discovered the perfect escape from the brawling pubs and concrete towers of Thatcher's Britain.

China to Chitral: Mountains are the beginning and end of all scenery

Harold Tilman

China to Chitral: Mountains are the beginning and end of all scenery by Harold Tilman

'Upon this trackless waste of snow, cut by a shrewd wind they sat down and wept.'

In China to Chitral H.W. 'Bill' Tilman completes one of his great post-war journeys. He travels from Central China, crossing Sinkiang, the Gobi and Takla Makan Deserts, before escaping to a crumbling British Empire with a crossing of the Karakoram to the new nation of Pakistan.

In 1951 there still persisted a legend that a vast mountain, higher than Everest, was to be found in the region, a good enough reason it seems for Tilman to traverse the land, 'a land shut in on three sides by vast snow ranges whose glacial...

In Mischief's Wake: In the joy of the actors lies the sense of any action. That is the explanation, that the excuse.

Harold Tilman

In Mischief's Wake: In the joy of the actors lies the sense of any action. That is the explanation, that the excuse. by Harold Tilman

'I felt like one who had first betrayed and then deserted a stricken friend; a friend with whom for the past fourteen years I had spent more time at sea than on land, and who, when not at sea, had seldom been out of my thoughts.'

The first of the three voyages described in this book gives H.W. 'Bill' Tilman's account of the final voyage and loss of Mischief, the Bristol Channel pilot cutter in which he had sailed over 100,000 miles to high latitudes in both Arctic and Antarctic waters.

Back home, refusing to accept defeat and going against the advice of his surveyor, he takes ownership of Sea Breeze...

William Boyd Dawkins and the Victorian Science of Cave Hunting: Three Men in a Cavern

Mark John White

William Boyd Dawkins and the Victorian Science of Cave Hunting: Three Men in a Cavern by Mark John WhiteWilliam Boyd Dawkins was a controversial Victorian geologist, palaeontologist and archaeologist who has divided opinion as either a hero or villain. For some, he was a pioneer of Darwinian science as a member of the Lubbock-Evans network, while for others he was little more than a reckless vandal who destroyed irreplaceable evidence and left precious little for future generations to assess. In this volume, Professor Mark White provides an unbiased archaeological and geological account of Boyd Dawkins' career and legacy by drawing on almost twenty years of research as well as his archive of published...
