Reviews

'An authoritative political analysis as well as a guide for future actions the US might consider taking with regard to Antarctica ... Abundantly illustrated and carefully documented, this well-written volume is a must for libraries across the US and abroad'
Choice

'[Shapley] has produced a superb book about Antarctica that successfully focuses on the continent's role in international affairs and also provides a beautifully written summary of the continent's history, science, resources, and politics. Her ability to cover so much material in one volume without superficiality is astonishing. The result is a book that will be of interest to the general reader as well as the specialist.'
Eugene B. Skolnikoff, Director of the Center for International Studies, MIT

'What will Antarctica become? A wilderness preserve? A scientific laboratory? A model of economic cooperation between industrial and developing countries? A polar oil field? Shapley focuses on the continent's role in international affairs as a resource contender... The Antarctic Treaty (1961) with 12 original signatory countries has held the web of political interests in balance thus far, but many disparate forces are impinging on the treaty... Shapley offers suggestions and solutions in this well-documented text. Recommended.'
Diane M. Brown, UC Berkeley
