Phil Steinberg with news of his new co-authored book Contesting the Arctic.
I’m delighted to announce that Contesting the Arctic: Politics and Imaginaries in the Circumpolar North is now published.
The book was something of a writing experiment for myself and co-authors. Contesting the Arctic not only seeks to understand the Arctic region; it also seeks to bridge the divide between academic and journalistic writing. Relying extensively on quotations from over 150 interviews, the book eschews the usual formal bibliographic references and footnotes, opting instead for a handful of explanatory endnotes and a concluding bibliographic essay. The result (we hope) is an engaging and accessible book that narrates the various ways in which Arctic residents and outsiders are imagining — and producing futures for — the region.
