Still unsolved, still baffling, still claiming new victims. Here are the untold stories. A pilot reports a strange haze enveloping his plane, then disappears; eleven hours after fuel starvation, as if calling from a void, he is heard 600 miles away. He requests permission to land, then vanishes forever. A freighter steaming over placid seas disappears without a trace. A pleasure yacht ghosts past without a soul on board. A pilot calls for help because a "weird object" is harassing his plane. A jet collides with an "unknown" and is never found. . . . Into the Bermuda Triangle is the first comprehensive examination of these baffling disappearances in more than a generation. Drawing on official reports from the NTSB and other investigative agencies as well as interviews with scientists, theorists, and survivors, leading authority Gian Quasar not only sets the record straight on previously examined cases, he also offers a bulging file of new cases, the collective results of his twelve-year investigation. In meticulous detail this unflinching account: Documents confirmed disappearances of airplanes and ships Gathers new testimony and reexamines old interviews from eyewitnesses and survivors Explores possible explanations ranging from zero-point energy to magnetic vortices Challenges our assumptions with the sheer weight of accumulated evidence In this age of technological and scientific discovery, there are still mysteries that transcend understanding. The Bermuda Triangle is one. "The best book I've ever read on this important subject."—Andrew Griffin, The Town Talk

*Includes pictures *Includes accounts *Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading *Includes a table of contents "They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; these see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit's end." - Psalm 107:23-27 Most scientists believe that mankind was originally spawned in the salty waters of the seas, and that over millennia creatures managed to evolve into today's primates. If this is so, the oceans have made it abundantly clear that have no desire to take their offspring safely back; from the time of the earliest sailing ships, there have been countless accidents and tragedies where numerous lives were quickly lost. In fact, the planet's waters have likely taken more lives than all the wars in human history, so even though lifelong sailors live much of their lives on the water, they rightly fear it. For centuries, sailors were a superstitious bunch, and there are plenty of stories and phenomena that have defied easy explanation. The 15th and 16th centuries had their tails of sea monsters, and the 20th century had its tales about the Bermuda Triangle. What many don't realize about the latter is that the stories of mysterious disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle date back to the early days of the American republic. The first ships lost in that area, with its points at the tip of Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda, were powered by wind, not engines, and fewer questions were asked when they vanished because shipwrecks and other similar disasters were more common. Thus, it was only later that questions about the Bermuda Triangle were widely raised. By the mid-20th century, there were rumors and tales that soon evolved into theories that ranged from the practical to the outlandish. Then, as satellite technology improved both communication and navigation, the stories died down again, as it became easier to explain the previously unexplainable and to save those who might otherwise have been lost. Today, one rarely hears stories about the Bermuda Triangle, even as some of its greatest mysteries have never been solved, from the disappearance of the USS Cyclops during World War I to the five TBM Avenger torpedo bombers that vanished in the area shortly after World War II. As a result, questions and conspiracy theories remain. Was there ever anything truly unusual going on in the Bermuda Triangle, and, if so, will it ever happen again? The Bermuda Triangle: The History and Mysteries of the Devil's Triangle looks at the history of the area, the mysterious disappearances, and the theories attempting to explain them. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about the Bermuda Triangle like never before, in no time at all.

The ocean hosts countless mysteries. With unimaginable depths, undiscovered territories, and unknown creatures, it generates both curiosity and fear from humans. The same fear can fuel a sea phenomenon-that resulted in the disappearance of ships and aircraft-into something more mysterious. The Bermuda Triangle is located in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, where many air and sea vessels are said to have disappeared under certain circumstances that some people treat as part of a paranormal mystery. The Triangle is not exactly found on any official map as the name was coined from a 20th-century literary piece. There are different versions for the Triangle's three points but the most widely used are Florida, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico. Over the years, the Bermuda Triangle gained a notorious reputation for being the "Devil's Triangle," capable of making the biggest ships disappear without a trace.

An alternative approach to mapping the world offers a new way to contest capitalism and globalization. Shangri-La, the Bermuda Triangle, Transylvania, the Golden Triangle--far-flung in popular conception, these anomalous places nonetheless occupy the same mysterious zone, a mythography of unruly cartographic practices. And because this mythography becomes associated with a particular area of the earth's surface, it may well suggest an alternative means of mapping the world, dissociated from the dominant geographical paradigms of nation-state, economic region, and the global/local marketing nexus. Large-scale nonnational geographical spaces that find their genesis in popular feeling, mystery, and belief, these four sites provide Brett Neilson with the basis not only for rethinking the current global reorganization of space and time but also for questioning the dominant narrative by which globalization marks the victory of capitalism. Free Trade in the Bermuda Triangle moves between analysis of popular fantasies and engagement with on-the-ground realities, weaving together topics as diverse as airplane disasters off the U.S. Atlantic coast, the global drug trade, vampire culture in postsocialist Europe, and the search for utopia in Chinese-occupied Tibet. The study of globalization is largely a solemn affair, occupied with increasing economic polarities, environmental degradation, and global insecurity. Free Trade in the Bermuda Triangle maintains a critical focus on these sobering issues but at the same time asks how popular pleasure and enjoyment can create viable alternatives to the current global order. Neilson takes seriously the proposition that capitalism must be contested at itsown level of generality, finding provisional grounds for resistance in nonlocal transnational spaces that embody quotidian hopes, desires, and anxieties. By studying the real and imagined dimensions of these popular geographies, his book seeks resources for social betterment in the fallen mythologies of the contemporary postutopian world.
