- About the book
Out consists partly of reprinted travelogues over the past 32 years, partly of newly written introductions of the decades that the book covers, from the 1970's to the new millennium, both politically and personally. The result is a richly versatile chronicle of time from the birds of passage in the northern part of Denmark to the unemployed worker in Naples, from the Mujahideen in Afghanistan to a wall in Berlin, from the Soviet Union on the brink of dissolution to the Danish soldiers in the Helmand province. This is modern history seen from and experienced by an explorer who has sought the uttermost corners only to return home to share his experiences with his readers.
