Frozen Empires

An Environmental History of the Antarctic Peninsula

Adrian Howkins

  • Uses primary source research from Britain, the United States, Australia, Argentina, Chile, and the Falkland Islands to cover a 150-year period.

  • Argues for imperial continuity, offering a new perspective on the modern history of Antarctica.
