Description-
  • From the arrival of the earliest humans to the very latest scientific controversies, the environmental history of Canada and Arctic North America is dramatic, diverse, and crucial for the very survival of the human race. Packed with key facts and analysis, this expert guide explores the complex interplay between human societies and the environment from the Aleutian Islands to the Grand Banks and from the Great Lakes to the Arctic Islands

    How has the challenging environment of America's most northerly regionsówith some areas still dominated by native peoplesóhelped shape politics and trade? What have been the consequences of European contact with this region and its indigenous inhabitants? How did natives and newcomers cope with, and change this vast and forbidding territory? Can a perspective on the past help us in grappling with the conflict between oil exploration and wilderness preservation on the North Slope of Alaska? This unique work charts the regionís environmental history from prehistory to modern times and is essential reading for students and experts alike.

Reviews-
  • H-Net Book Review, 01/01/2008 It is a landmark in Canadian environmental history and an important new work generally. With its materialist focus, it will be of great interest and use to labor and business historians as well as their environmentally focused colleagues.
  • Technology & Culture, 04/01/2008 "It would be useful in any environmental or Canadian history course, and anyone interested in studying technological developments would find an abundance of useful and insightful information."
  • ARBA, 00/00/00 "This work is recommended for environmental and geography collections in academic and large public library collections."
  • Midwest Book Review, 04/01/2007 "With all the attention focused on environmental issues and the decline of Arctic conditions, a book like Canada and Arctic North America: An Environmental History proves an essential 'must' for any college-level or specialty collection focusing on Northern Hemisphere environmental conditions, politics, and science."
