About Younghusband

Sir Francis Edward Younghusband (1863-1942) was a British explorer, army officer, military-political officer, and foreign correspondent born in India who led expeditions into Manchuria, Kashgar, and Tibet. He three times tried and failed to scale Mt. Everest and journeyed from China to India, crossing the Gobi desert and the Mustagh Pass (alt. c.19,000 ft/5,791 m) of the Karakoram mountain range in modern day Pakistan. Convinced of Russian designs on British interests in India, Younghusband proactively engaged in the nineteenth century spying and conflict over Central Asia between the British and the Russians known as the Great Game. "Younghusband" is a Canadian who has spent a number of years bouncing back and forth between his home country and Japan. Fluent in Japanese and English with experience in numerous other languages from Spanish to Georgian, Younghusband has travelled throughout Asia. He graduated with an MA from the War Studies Department at the Royal Military College of Canada, where he focussed on the Japanese oil industry and energy security issues. He has recently returned to Canada from Japan, and is working in the technology sector.

    @Sarlanga . There is a Santa Cruz province in Argentina, but another Santa Cruz (de la Sierra) in Bolivia, to which the map refers.
    As far as I know there is a political movement in Santa Cruz, Bolivia which is rather autonomist, as opposed to separatist, in nature.

    Thanks for this post. Even the author’s site doesn’t have the hi res version. This would be fascinating to study in more detail.

    Aunque seamos minoría, somos muchos los andaluces soberanistas. Los hay independentistas, federalistas, incluso confederalistas que aspiran a una Andalucía libre dentro de una confederación de repúblicas ibéricas, inluida Portugal.

    Viva Andalucía Libre!!!!!

    Aunque sean minoría y no estén articulados políticamente, en Andalucía existe un importante movimiento cultural soberanista que aspira a una Andalucía libre. Algunos demandan la independencia y otros el federalismo: una Andalucía soberana en el marco de una confederación de repúblicas ibéricas, incluida Portugal. Un sueño libertario.
    Viva Andalucía Libre!!!!
