Oslo by JT Rogers

Oslo makes complex geopolitics a living, breathing spectacle
New blockbuster takes climate chaos to the extreme, where what it lacks in coherent storyline and believable science, it makes up for in planet-destroying special effects
Prestigious Natural History Museum photography competition recognises Brent Stirton's capturing of a black rhino moments after being shot by poachers in South Africa
An inveterate armchair traveller ever since my Soviet childhood, I have always loved maps, which used to provide me with an imaginary window to the outside world – the only one available in the USSR
Bonnett’s previous book, Off the Map, was a thoroughly readable study of unmapped areas: uninhabited cities, liminal spaces.
