Explains what drove this 'long, lean, lanky' man to such extremes: geographically, intellectually and politically. His travels took him from Captain Scott's final expedition in Antarctica to every continent on earth. In a life that stretched from the Boer War to the Cold War, he sought to enlighten the public on the human relation to the environment. As a geographer whose work crossed into anthropology, he courted controversy and craved recognition. Today's preoccupations with climate change, the ascendancy of Asian nations, and the renewed threat of nuclear war, were all addressed by Taylor generations earlier. ISBN: 9780642276681.
