Frozen Empires

An Environmental History of the Antarctic Peninsula

Adrian Howkins

  • Focuses on the natural environment of the Antarctic peninsula and the relationship between environmental and diplomatic history.
  • Uses primary source research from Britain, the United States, Australia, Argentina, Chile, and the Falkland Islands to cover a 150-year period.
  • Shows how contemporary championing of "science for the good of humanity" has been used by nation-states to assert their sovereignty claims in Antarctica.
  • Argues for imperial continuity, offering a new perspective on the modern history of Antarctica.
