Mapping Men and Empire : A Geography of Adventure
by Richard Phillips
The heroes of adventure fiction have led readers through distant discoveries and exotic encounters for over three centuries. But where exactly have they taken us and what have they shown? 

Produced and consumed in vast quantities from the eighteenth through the twentieth-centuries, adventure stories map both European and non-European peoples and places. Robinson Crusoe maps a white male, Christian, middle-class adventurer -- a vision for Britain -- and a petit-bourgeois, settled island with a white master and a black slave -- a vision for British colonialism. These exotic yet uncomplicated settings serve to neutralize and normalize constructs that seem implausible in more immediately familiar settings. But beneath the superficial realism of adventure stories there lies an undercurrent of ambivalence, which makes adventures' maps more fragile than they appear.

The Beak of the Finch : A Story of Evolution in Our Time
Jonathan Weiner
On the Galapagos Islands Charles Darwin gave his first hint at his theory of natural selection, writing about the finches he studied there. In Darwin's time there was no proof of this theoretical mechanism for evolution. Indeed it would have been thought absurd to imagine observing it actually happen; the process was thought to take geological time spans. Weiner, an outstanding science journalist, details research done in the last 20 years that proves otherwise. Biologists Peter and Rosemary Grant have documented the evolution of Darwin's Galapagos finches, demonstrating that it is neither rare nor slow, but can be watched by the hour. Weiner's superb account reads like a thriller and won the1995 Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction.

Animals, whom we have made our slaves, we do not like to consider our equal.

The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.
