520 "Conversations defining the Arctic region often provoke
debate and controversy--for scientists, this lies in the
imprecise and imaginary line known as the Arctic Circle;
for countries like Canada, Russia, the United States, and
Denmark, such discussions are based in competition for
land and resources; for indigenous communities, those
discussions are also rooted in issues of rights. These
shifting lines are only made murkier by the threat of
global climate change. In the Arctic Ocean, the
consequences of Earth's warming trend are most immediately
observable in the multi-year and perennial ice that has
begun to melt, which threatens ice-dependent
microorganisms and, eventually, will disrupt all of Arctic
life and raise sea levels globally. In The Arctic: What
Everyone Needs to Know, Klaus Dodds and Mark Nuttall offer
concise answers to the myriad questions that arise when
looking at the circumpolar North. They focus on its
peoples, politics, environment, resource development, and
conservation to provide critical information about how
changes there can, and will, affect our entire globe and
all of its inhabitants. Dodds and Nuttall explore how the
Arctic's importance has grown over time, the region's role
during the Cold War, indigenous communities and their
history, and the past and future of the Arctic's
governance, among other crucial topics. "--|cProvided by
