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 nationsseeking to incorporate the Antarctic into their own national stories - and to claim its frozen wastes as their own.

Looks good and would have bought it and read it. However, a lack of maps makes it a less appealing prospect
