Book Summary:

'A fizzingly entertaining and enlightening book' Daily Telegraph 'Mesmerising' Geographical Magazine 'A fascinating delve into uncharted, forgotten lost places. But it's not just a trivia-tastic anthology of remote destinations but a nifty piece of psycho-geography, explaining our human need for these cartographical conundrums.' Wanderlust In a world of Google Earth, in which it is easy to believe that every discovery has been made and every adventure already had, Off the Map is a stunning testament to how mysterious our planet still is. From forgotten enclaves to floating islands, from hidden villages to New York gutter spaces, Off the Map charts the hidden corners of our planet. And while these are not necessarily places you would choose to visit on holiday - Hobyo, the pirate capital of Somalia, or Zheleznogorsk, a secret military town in Russia - they each carry a story about the strangeness of place and our need for a geography that understands our hunger for the fantastic and the unexpected. But it also shows us that topophilia, the love of place, is a fundamental part of what it is to be human. Whether you are an urban explorer or an armchair traveller, Off the Map will inspire and enchant. You'll never look at a map in quite the same way again.

Book Summary:

Off the map began its life as a 98-page half-size zine, of which 50 copies were made by its two authors in Prague and given out to friends. A few months later in Olympia, Wash., CrimethInc. agents happened upon one of the authors making a few more copies, and she gave them a copy. One day later, a search was underway to find the author and get permission to copy and distribute the publication. Both authors became actively involved with CrimethInc., and since then CrimethInc has distributed thousands of copies. Cf. CrimethInc. website.

Book Summary:

Until recent aerial surveys, the Guiana Highlands bordering Brazil were one of the few remaining unknown regions on Earth and were believed to house El Dorado and the fabled tribe of Amazon warrior women. The barrier of rapids pouring from the mountain has kept it almost unexplored. In 1950, Raymond Maufrais, a young French explorer, set off into the Amazonian jungle of the region and was never seen again. Fifty years later, inspired by Maufrais' diary, John and Heather Harrison took to the wildest and most remote tributaries of the Amazon with just a canoe and shotgun for company. They quickly have to adjust to an existence where they are dependent upon nature for food and upon each other for their sanity. With no means of contacting civilization, they are forced to realize the poignancy of Maufrais' final record. Unaided and off the map, they encounter jaguars and poisonous frogs, are threatened by malaria and almost lose their way entirely. All the while they struggle to keep their relationship intact in this most inhospitable of places.

Book Summary:

Geography is getting stranger. Out there, fleets of new islands are under construction and micro-nations are struggling into the light. As new borders and boundaries ebb and flow with increasing speed, it feels as if our old maps are being discarded, redrawn or torn up. Alastair Bonnett uncovers the stories of thirty-nine extraordinary places, each of which challenges us to re-imagine the world around us. From emerging islands, disruptive enclaves and bold utopian visions to uncanny ruins, ghostly tunnels and hidden landscapes – these are destinations that lie beyond ordinary coordinates. A follow on from the critically acclaimed Off the Map, this is a timely and fascinating discussion of place, ownership and ideas of state.
