Synopsis:

This in-depth exploration of the history and culture of the sometimes illegal activity of BASE jumping provides historical and current information as well as a glimpse into the incredible adrenaline rush of the sport.


· A history of early attempts at human flight as well as a chronology of fixed object jumping

· Illustrations of jumpers, BASE jumping points, and equipment

· A glossary of key terms such as "burnt object" and "object strike"

· A resource guide with additional information such as numerous films and websites for BASE organizations

Book Description:

How does a human being get to the point where he or she considers jumping from deadly heights, simply for the thrill of it? BASE jumping—the four-letter term being an acronym for the four categories of jumping points: Building, Antenna, Span, Earth—is not a recently invented extreme activity. In fact, there is evidence to suggest that the first fixed object jump took place in the ninth century.

Book Description ABC-CLIO. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Base Jumping: The Ultimate Guide, Jason Laurendeau, BASE jumping is an extreme sport that has gained significant popularity. To date, there are over 1,400 jumpers who have earned their "BASE number," which means that they have jumped from a building, an antenna, a span, and a terrestrial point. And at least one BASE jumper is planning to attempt landing from a BASE jump without a parachute. BASE Jumping: The Ultimate Guide examines the history, subculture, and technologies associated with BASE jumping. Additionally, it considers what the relatively new expansion of this activity means within the context of how our society considers danger and risk. After an introduction, its chapters cover BASE culture and ethics, the sport's origins and current developments, techniques and equipment, sites and events, pioneering jumpers and icons of the sport, and future directions. The author-a former skydiver and BASE jumper himself-draws from careful research as well as interviews with current BASE jumpers to both provide historical context and represent the voices of those participating in the activity.
