Inhaltsangabe: The Polar Regions is a systematic investigation of both the geopolitical commonalties and the differences between the Arctic and the Antarctic. It is the first book to integrate polar studies of this nature with teaching and research on political geography and geopolitics. Based on the premise that geopolitical isolation of the polar regions stands substantially eroded today, the book argues that the contemporary polar scene should be approached and understood in terms of its broader regional as well as global context. It also argues that in the 21st century the two polar regions will be increasingly valued not only for their intrinsic polar merits, but also for their contribution to an understanding of global problems. A critical evaluation of the promise and the performance of the Antarctic Treaty System is provided. The book also examines the ongoing debate about Antarctica, which underlines the need to look beyond the present agreement on the Antarctic and to address the geopolitical implications of it. By presenting studies of both polar regions, this book seeks to test assumptions about the new geopolitics and to evaluate the prospects of it in these regions. The text will be of particular interest to political geographers and specialists in international relations, but will also be an important text for students and researchers in political geography, environmental management and environmental politics.
From the Publisher: Presents the premise that geopolitical isolation of the Arctic and Antarctic remains substantially eroded today, arguing that the contemporary polar scene should be approached and understood in terms of its broader regional and global context. Views the Antarctic Treaty System (ATS) as an early experiment in the new geopolitics in which strategic vision is not the dominant perspective. Critically evaluates the promise and performance of the ATS as a manager of increasingly diverse uses of the Antarctic along with an environmental audit. Examines the difficult issues of sustainable, equitable development and comprehensive security that will have to be adjudicated in the polar regions. Discusses the concerns and prospects of the peoples indigenous to these areas.
