Description
 
In this innovative work, McDougall covers 400 years of exciting voyages of discovery, pioneering feats, engineering marvels, political plots & business chicanery, racial clashes & brutal wars. It is a chronicle complete with little-known facts & turning points, but always focused on the remarkable people at the center of events. Some of these include the America-loving Japanese ambassador to Washington on the eve of the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Russian builder of the Trans-Siberian Railway, & a Hawaiian queen during the first period of Western competition for the islands. A gripping & illuminating account of the rise & fall of the empires in the last, vast, unexplored corner of the habitable earth -- an area occupying 1/6 of the globe. Illustrations.
