This analysis of 20th-century imperialism takes early mountaineering beyond the realm of recreation. It sets Halford Mackinder's 1899 climb of Mt Kenya and Annie Smith Peck's 1908 ascent of Huascaran in Bolivia, and John Baptiste Noel's filming of the 1924 British attempt on Mt Everest in the larger historical context of American and British foreign policy in the era of neo-imperialism.
