Unruly Places Book PDF summary

Alastair Bonnett’s tour of the world’s most unlikely micro-nations, moving villages, secret cities, and no man’s lands shows us the modern world from surprising new vantage points, and is bound to inspire urban explorers, off-the-beaten-trail wanderers, and armchair travellers. He connects what we see on maps to what’s happening in the world by looking at the places that are hardest to pin down: inaccessible zones, improvised settlements, and multiple cities sharing the same space. Consider Hobyo, a real-life pirate capital on the coast of the Indian Ocean, or Sealand, an abandoned gun platform off the English coast that a British citizen claimed as his own sovereign nation, issuing passports and making his wife a princess. Or Sandy Island, which appeared on maps well into 2012, despite the fact that it never existed. Illustrated with original maps and drawings, Unruly Places gives readers a new way of understanding the places we occupy. It’s a stunning testament to how mysterious the world remains today.

Today's global economy is yesterday's empire. Imperialism in whatever guise is the same through time, penetrating every area of our lives, affecting whole cultures as well as the deep core of individuals. And maps have been the tools of empire, defining the territory to be exploited. Off The Map is a unique exploration of globalization. Part history, part autobiography, and part fiction, it weaves together the history of the last 300 years of Western imperialism, the author's own story of sexual
