No one had travelled like Captain Cook and no one can again Before his three voyages the world was uncertain and dangerous after them it was clear and safe Written as a conceptual field guide to the voyages i Longitude and Empire i offers a significant rereading of both the voyages and of modern political philosophy br br While the voyages are not explicitly works of political philosophy they are political philosophy by other means offering new ways of thinking about the world and about the place of human beings have in that world More than any other work they mark the shift from early modern to modern ways of looking at the world a world that is no longer divided into Europeans and savages but is populated by an almost overwhelming variety of national identities br br Cook s voyages took what fragmented and obscure descriptions of the world that were available and consolidated them into a single textual tabular vision of the entire world Places thus became clear and distinct their locations were fixed and everything inside people animals plants and artifacts was identified collected understood and assimilated into a single world order The Pacific was a test case for a new way of knowing and relating to the world Then it was possible to seriously travel only in Cook s wake to be always already moving either within or in reaction to his accounts of the world As the culmination of global exploration Cook s voyages became the ideal and it is through Cook after Cook that Europe regrouped what knowledge it already had and returned to the world with new epistemological and political expectations br br This fascinating and informative account offers a new understanding of Captain Cook s voyages and how they affected Europe s world view It will engage historians geographers ethnographers Cook enthusiasts and anyone with an interest in epistemology or how the world was mapped Longitude and Empire: How Captain Cook's Voyage Changed the World books by Brian W.
