Product Details


From the first European contact to the present, the Arctic has been exploited. ``British journalist Hall, who has traveled throughout the Arctic for many years, here writes a powerful and moving story of the Far North, its people and an ominous future,'' said PW of this ``important and timely book.'' (August)

The ``Fourth World''the lands, wildlife, and peoples north of the Arctic Circleis threatened by ecological disaster, according to Hall, a British TV journalist. He details how indigenous cultures survived for thousands of years in the harshest conditions only to be undermined or destroyed by the predatory activities of whalers, traders, ``southern'' governments, and other foreign interlopers. Only recently have indigenes taken their destiny into their own hands, with varying degrees of success. Ecologically sound planning is needed for the region. The Fourth World has important things to say, but is marred somewhat by indifferent writing and poor organization. J.F. Husband, Framingham State Coll. Lib., Mass.
