Extractions: "The history of the formation of the current country of Guyana is little known. Burnett has written a fascinating book on the early period of this former British colony in northern South America. . . . [He] examines the history of mapmaking and geography as it relates to the discovery and formation of the British Empire in this part of the Americas. Focusing on mid-1800s explorer Sir Robert H. Schomburgk, who under the auspices of the Royal Geographical Society explored and mapped a region that is now part of Brazil, Venezuela, and Guyana, Burnett shows that the activities of Schomburgk and other explorers essentially determined the official boundaries of what became British Guiana. . . . [W]ell-written and easy-to-follow." Library Journal "Focusing on the much-contested boundaries of modern Guyanalegendary home of El Doradoand on the remarkable adventures of Robert Schomburgk, D. Graham Burnett helps recast the conception of boundaries and their place in imagination, literature, and geopolitics. To the rational discourse of the trigonometric survey, and its place in imperial acquisition, Burnett adds the peculiarities of the traverse, the significance of the landmark, and the changing relationship between observer and instrument in constructing the 'lay of the land.' The result is a fascinating synthesis of imperial history, geography, cartography, and the history of science that raises fresh questions to explore on every page."

Extractions: Terror in Guyana? Received through email, a reader raises the question:- After the tragedy in New York and Washington the question arises: WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF GUYANA WAS ATTACKED? Well ... if that happens, there can be no comparison. That's because in Guyana we are much better prepared for these kinds of attacks. We do not construct such exaggerated elevated buildings. We all get on the job late in the morning, so at 8:45 am there won't be sufficient people to kill. Firefighters and Police Officers will do their utmost not to get to the spot in time. They will reach there just when everything is over, so there will be no casualties among them. The National Airline would surely have fouled up the terrorists plan by being delayed again. A Guyanese would not have used his cell phone to call home. He would've hot the terrorist over his head with it over his head. If a terrorist was living for one year in Guyana he would have been robbed and bothered so many times he would've given up and gone home a long time ago.
