About this book

An author, foreign correspondent, academic, and television personality, Roger Willemsen is a familiar figure in Germany; The Ends of the Earth offers English-language readers a chance to engage with his uniquely astute and perspective take on the world. Consisting of twenty-two essays recounting and reflecting on a lifetime of travel to the far and forgotten corners of our planet, The Ends of the Earth offers remarkable encounters and mysterious entanglements in locations as diverse as a Kamchatkan volcano, a Burmese railway station, an Arctic icebreaker, and a Minsk hospital ward. Willemsen is the perfect companion, reveling in the strange and unlovely, and tracing unexpected connections among places, times, and peoples.
