Fourth Edition

Robert M. Bone

  • The fourth edition is thoroughly updated with the latest data, research, and geopolitical developments. Students benefit from having access to the most current information, supported by historical and academic context.
  • A NEW chapter explores the geopolitical forces, economic hopes, and sovereignty issues raised by an increasingly accessible North and the opening of the Northwest Passage.
  • The text has been expanded to cover the unique effects of climate change on the communities and fragile environment of the North.
  • A NEW image bank will make photographs and figures from the text available online, in full-colour, for classroom use.
  • New and revised vignettes explore a broad range of topics and encourage discussion amongst students. Topics include the challenges of aboriginal self-government and the gap between education and employment in Northern communities; the question of using space technology to protect Arctic sovereignty; and the struggle to protect the environment while meeting energy demands.
  • The pedagogical program has been updated and expanded to include more maps, tables, photographs, and figures, revised challenge questions, and expanded notes to give students a thorough understanding of the distinct character of the Canadian North.
