Email this review


Considering the impetus of World War II for the development of new frontiers, this then expounds upon the new research being done in exploration in both the tropics and the Arctic, returns to the inheritance of ""walls"" history has placed around men's thinking in prejudicing them against these areas of the world. Productivity versus exploitation, progress versus status quo, these are the qualities that mark his accounts of the Amazon, Latin America, Puerto Rico, Liberia, Africa, Iceland, the Polar Sea, the Soviet Arctic, Alaska, as laboratories of the new endeavor in expansion. It is an intelligent view of world problems, aware of the cultural needs as well as the economic, and well worth world-thinking reading.
