Beginning with what was once the "last place on earth," this book redirects discussions within the history of exploration and of globalization.Glasbergtakes on persistent clichés of Antarctica as exceptional territory for masculine heroics, untouched wilderness, utopia for international science, or symbol of hope for capitalism or a post-ecological future.Arguing that Antarctica is the most mediated place on earth and thus an ideal location for testing the limits of biopolitical management of population and place,this bookremaps national and postcolonial methods andoffers a new look on a "forgotten" continent now the focus of ecological concern.
