Reviews

"In this engaging and powerful book, Ed Struzik draws on firsthand experience and analysis of policy decisions to provide a detailed account of Arctic ecosystems stressed by shifting weather patterns, pollutants and disease. Through Struzik's compelling insights the reader can begin to draw connections between Arctic environmental change and events occurring elsewhere much further south."--Erica Dingman, Director, Arctic in Context, World Policy Institute "Future Arctic is a powerful, provocative, personal look at the Arctic in all its wonder and uncertainty. Ed Struzik has the experience to connect stories that are too often told separately, with vigorous writing and first-hand insight. Be ready to think carefully about what Arctic change means for all of us." --Henry P. Huntington, Arctic scientist and co-chair of the USNAS report "The Arctic in the Anthropocene" "Few places on earth are changing as fast as the high Arctic, and few have told the story as compellingly as Ed Struzik." --Bill McKibben, author of "Eaarth" "No journalist has traveled more widely in the North American Arctic or understands the region better than Ed Struzik. In Future Arctic he has written a fascinating and vitally important book about the swift changes sweeping across the Far North. If you want to see where the world is headed in an era of rapid warming, this is the book to read." --Fen Montaigne, author of "Fraser's Penguins" "Future Arctic is marvelous--as a long-time arctic reseracher, I can honestly say it is the best book that I have seen dealing with the challenges facing the region. A masterful examination of the past, present, and future status of the Arctic, it is also very enjoyable reading, storytelling at its best." --Vera Alexander, Professor and Dean Emerita, University of Alaska Fairbanks
