The Antarctic. A very short introduction


De achterflap:

The Antarctic is the only part of the Earth without an indigenous human population. While its existence has been imagined for hundreds of years, it is only in the last one hundred and fifty years that humans have encountered, explored, and exploited its landmass and seas. From polar exploration and discovery to pore recent preoccupation with the stability of Antarctica's ice cap, climate change, and mineral resource exploitation, contemporary Antarctica continues to attract great interest from political leaders, journalists, and public audiences around the world.

In this Very Short Introduction, Klaus Dodds provides a modern evaluation of the life, the science, and the geopolitics of the Antarctic.
