Notes:
A visionary exploration of the life and times of Joseph Conrad, his turbulent age of globalisation and our own, from one of the most exciting young historians writing today. Migration, terrorism, the tensions between global capitalism and nationalism, the promise and peril of a technological and communications revolution: these forces shaped the life and work of Joseph Conrad at the dawn of the 20th century. In this brilliant new interpretation of one of the great voices in modern literature, Maya Jasanoff reveals Conrad as a prophet of globalisation as we recognise it today.

Reviews
A well-written and detailed book for anyone who is a lover of Joseph Conrad's novels and stories. The work is an absorbing account of Jasanoff's travels in the footsteps of 'the Master', but she also provides a detailed background of the history and importance of the places: and Conrad's experiences there. Jasanoff also points up where Conrad changes both events, situations and localities to better illustrate his plots. Conrad's works reveal more each time they are reread, and this study adds new depths and emphases.
