Ed Larson: Empire of Ice: Scott, Shackleton and the Heroic Age of Antarctic Science @ Glamour Bar
Need to get away from Shanghai’s suffocating crowds and tightly-bunched skyscrapers? Sign up for a trip back in time with Pulitzer Prize winner Ed Larson, to the barren Antarctic world of explorers like Ernest Shackleton, Robert Scott, and Roald Amundsen. Through his historical insight on the geopolitical context of this exploration epoch, Larson provides us with a new lens to view these often romanticized adventurers. Discover how our former championing of certain explorers over others because of their Hollywood heroics was out of touch with the science-oriented paradigm of the time.
