About this book

One of the key aspects of the lives of circumpolar peoples, be they in Scandinavia, Alaska, Russia or Canada, is their relationship to the wild animals that support them. This is the first book to offer a comprehensive picture of wildlife management, aboriginal rights, and politics in the Circumpolar North. It reveals unexpected continuities between socialist and capitalist ecological approaches, and addresses the issues arising from increased cultural exchange between the various aboriginal peoples.
