Abstract

Encyclopedia of Arctic entry - Severnaya Zemlya

Providing rich and detailed essays on the Arctic's environment, wildlife, climate, history, exploration, resources, economics, politics, indigenous cultures and languages, conservation initiatives, and many other topics, the Encyclopedia of the Arctic is the only major work and comprehensive A-Z reference source on this vast, complex, changing, and increasing important part of the globe.

The Encyclopedia of the Arctic:

* Brings together in one place anthropological, geographical, historical, political, and environmental information on the Arctic

* Includes maps for each country and political region, locating towns, rivers, and mountains that have their own entries

* Examines environmental and conservation issues including development for oil and gas, climate change effects on snow and ice cover, and health issues related to transport of pollutants from the industrialized world

* Provides biographies of prominent figures in history, exploration, and contemporary politics

* Discusses each group of indigenous peoples from Alaska to Siberia, Fennoscandia and Greenland, and the challenges they face such as land claims and self-government

* Contains facts and bibliographies on remote places that are hard to find in English or on the internet such as Russian Arctic islands and the history of the Siberian labor camps, as well as information about Arctic communities, and biographies of indigenous political leaders.
