Library Journal Review

The "30" in the title of Burrough's 1916 novel is the 30th (and 175th) longitude, the mass formerly known as Europe, which has become a no man's land in the year 2137. To the inhabitants of the Pan-American Federation, death clearly lies within those boundaries, but a submarine crew is willing to risk it in order to set foot in the old world. (c) Copyright 2010.
