The Greening of Antarctica

Assembling an International Environment

Alessandro Antonello

  • First detailed narrative of Antarctic diplomacy and environmental politics after the signing of the Antarctic Treaty in 1959
  • Demonstrates how diplomats and scientists thought about the Antarctic environment and Antarctic space, and how they attempted to use it for geopolitical and institutional advantage
  • Approaches international treaties not simply as legal texts but as documents articulating complex relationships between states and between humans and the non-human environment
  • Draws on a wide range of government and non-governmental archives from four countries, including newly-released government archives
