Book Description Hutchinson (Australia), Sydney, 1988. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Sitting on Penguins is above all, a critique of the shortsightedness of Australia's Antarctic policy - which seeks to benefit from our Antarctic claims, but cannot muster the political or national will to invest wisely in the future. The book is an account of a trip the author made to the Antarctic in 1985-86. It deals with his physical and emotional experiences there, such as entering Mawson's hut, being confronted with the growing pollution problem around our bases. Hard hitting but fair, concerned to convey the daily reality of life in the far south, sitting on Penguins carries the reader along with its mixture of information, opinion, personal experience and humour. Maps of the claimed and the unclaimed land on the front and the rear pastedowns. BOOK DETAILS: The contents are clean, tight and sound throughout. The boards are clean and unmarked, with only minimal wear. The lettering on the spine is clear and bright. The dust wrapper is not price clipped and shows only minor shelf-wear.
