About this book

The Canadian North: Issues and Challenges, Fourth Edition, is a comprehensive survey of the unique forces, both human and physical, that have shaped and continue to transform the Arctic region. Robert M. Bone effectively weaves the historic, geographic, economic, political, environmental, and social dimensions of the North to provide students with the most up-to-date research and developments.

Since the previous edition, interest in the opening of the Northwest Passage, access to the wealth of natural resources contained in the region, and increased signs of climate change have become major topics of discussion, both in Parliament and on the world stage. A new chapter examines the geopolitical forces that are each vying for their respective piece of the pie, and the new challenges faced by Northern communities as their once remote home becomes increasingly more accessible. Further, Bone has expanded the discussion on the effects of global warming on the environment and the consequences of climate change on Inuit way of life.

This new edition builds upon the challenge questions, extensive glossary, and robust art program of previous editions and preserves Bone's authoritative and accessible narrative, which has been a key feature of this text.
