Chapter in the Handbook on the Politics of Antarctica

The Antarctic and Southern Ocean are hotspots for contemporary endeavours to oversee 'the last frontier' of the Earth. The Handbook on the Politics of Antarctica offers a wide-ranging and comprehensive overview of the governance, geopolitics, international law, cultural studies and history of the region. Four thematic sections take readers from the earliest human encounters to contemporary resource exploitation and climate change. Written by leading experts, the Handbook brings together the very best interdisciplinary social science and humanities scholarship on the Antarctic and Southern Ocean.

Edited by Klaus Dodds, Professor of Geopolitics, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK, Alan D. Hemmings, Adjunct Associate Professor, Gateway Antarctica Centre for Antarctic Studies and Research, University of Canterbury, New Zealand and Peder Roberts, Researcher, Division of History of Science, Technology and Environment, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden.
