Beyond the Map

Unruly Enclaves, Ghostly Places, Emerging Lands and Our Search for New Utopias
Alastair Bonnett

Description

Alaistair Bonnet presents the stories of 43 extraordinary places, all of which will challenge the very concept of place.

The ever more unruly maps of human and physical geography can seem overwhelming. Perhaps that’s why little places, the small secrets, the hidden surprises, have become so important. Alastair sets out on a journey across the world in search of a diverse range of modern utopias, from the Dubai Shopping Mall to the caliphate of the Islamic State, from the Findhorn eco-community in Scotland to Cybertopias such as Second Life.
