Reviews

“The book is well-organized with frequent subheadings enabling readers to dive in and find information on a particular topic of interest. … This volume will be a useful resource to anyone involved in Antarctic science, environmental regulation, or politics, enabling them to find information about areas beyond their own speciality. At the same time, it covers a wide range of topics presented in a way that is accessible to interested general readers.” (Robert Larter, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 93 (1), March, 2018)

“This book provides an introduction to the exploration of Antarctica … . The volume includes a short introduction followed by four sections of articles arranged thematically. … Broad and thoughtful in its approach, this work is a valuable addition to the expanding canon of analyses of the history and future of Antarctica. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners; general readers.” (H. Doss, Choice, Vol. 53 (9), May, 2016)
