"In the heroic age of polar exploration, Sir Douglas Mawson stands in the first rank. His Antartic expeditions of 1911-14 and 1929-31 resulted in Australia's claiming 40 per cent of the sixth continent. The sole survivor of an epic 300-mile trek, Mawson was also a scientist of national stature." "Philip Ayres has now uncovered, from many unpublished sources, a complex and interesting figure. He portrays Mawson the geo-politician with influential friends and rivals who, in 1942, offered his services to Prime Minister Curtin as Ambassador to Washington. In the Antartic darkness of 1913, he confronted the bewildered delusions of a companion who believed himself to be Jesus Christ. During the Great War, he compiled detailed reports on chemical weapons during visits to the vast war factories of England." "Ayres also shows us the devoted husband of Paquita; the social Mawson of the Adelaide Club; the scientist within his national and international networks; the geologist who in 1924 failed to get the Sydney Chair; and the litigious Mawson, suing or threatening suit against associates who failed him." "In this biography, Philip Ayres not only illuminates Douglas Mawson's many achievements but also enables us to know and understand him as a human being." "The book's many illustrations include reproductions of exquisite early colour photographs from the Antartic expedition of 1911-14"--Jacket

4 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book considers what honesty or virtue is, considered by itself, and in what manner it is influenced by religion; how far religion necessarily implies virtue, and whether it be a true saying, that it is impossible for an atheist to be virtuous, or share any real degree of honesty or merit. If we would pretend to give the least new light, or explain any thing effectually, within the intended compass of this inquiry; 'tis necessary to take things pretty deep; and endeavour, by some sort of scheme, to represent the original of each opinion, whether natural or unnatural, relation to the deity"--Book.
