Bryan's photo-rich (285 color, 140 b&w) portrait of the National Geographic Society mixes history and the natural sciences. Chapters cover such subjects as the conquering of the North and South poles, war and conflict, outer space, and conservation. With ample text and simply stunning photographs, this volume will still "attract a wide audience from scholars to laypersons" (LJ 12/87). Essential for most libraries.
