New islands are less than development or rising as a result of weather switch. Eccentric enclaves and really good utopian experiments are multiplying. Once-secret fable gardens are cracking open their doorways to outsiders. Our global is turning into stranger by way of the day—and Alastair Bonnett observes and captures each attention-grabbing change.


In Beyond the Map, Bonnett provides tales of the world’s such a lot notable spaces—many unmarked on any professional map—all of which problem our assumptions approximately what we know—or imagine we know—about our global. As cultural, non secular and political limitations ebb and circulate with each one passing day, conventional maps get to the bottom of and fragment. With an analogous adventurous spirit he effused within the acclaimed Unruly Places, Bonnett takes us to thirty-nine magnificent spots world wide to discover those altering limitations and stimulate our geographical mind's eye. a few are tied to disruptive modern political turbulence, akin to the increase of ISIL, Russia’s incursions into Ukraine and the Brexit vote within the uk. Others discover the key locations no longer proven on Google Earth or replicate fast-changing landscapes.


Beyond the Map trips out right into a global of mysterious, daunting and magical areas. it's a international of hidden cultures and ghostly thoughts, of uncountable new islands and curious stabs at paradise. From the phantom tunnels of the Tokyo subway to a gorgeous movie-set new edition of 1950s-era Moscow; from the caliphate of the Islamic nation to digital cybertopias—this book serves as an creative advisor to the farthest fringes of geography.
