    ARCTIC FRONT: DEFENDING CANADA IN THE FAR NORTH

    Book ID/图书代码: 12760018C00005

    English Summary/英文概要: As global warming continues to melt the ice in the Northwest Passage and the competition for northern resources heats up, Canada, the authors warn, will be forced to defend this area from a position of grave weakness. Our leaders need to take action today, blending defense and development, to complete Canadian nation-building in this fragile region.

    An energetic and engaging collaboration by four of Canada’s leading Northern specialists, Arctic Front is a clarion call to all Canadians about our endangered Arctic region, challenging the country to step away from the symbols and myth-making of the past and toward the urgent political, environmental and economic realities of the 21st century.

    Chinese Summary/中文概要:

    Awards/获奖情况:– ignored this region for generations

    – expanded Canadian sovereignty over the past hundred years by reacting to other countries’ challenges

    – become the least effective of all circumpolar nations in responding to the needs of the Arctic

    – neglected our obligations to the North, including a failure to capitalize on the human and economic resources of this vast landor to establish a presence that would make any foreign claims to offshore resources inconceivable.
