A History of the Arctic: Nature, Exploration and Exploitation
Today it stands at the epicentre of an unprecedented environmental crisis. Yet for all its renown the Arctic remains far from perfectly understood. In A History of the Arctic, award-winning polar historian John McCannon provides a far-reaching overview from the Stone Age to the present, examining all major aspects of this vital region from a global perspective.
Covering the history of each Arctic nation, McCannon discusses many topics, including polar exploration and science, nation-building and diplomacy, environmental issues and climate change, and the role of indigenous populations in Arctic history. With Arctic territorial claims and resource- extraction assuming ever greater importance in the twenty-first century, this book includes a timely assessment of current diplomatic and environmental realities, along with the increasingly dire risks the region is likely to face in the near future.
