Ice and Water
Politics, Peoples, and the Arctic CouncilBook
The Canadian embrace of co-operative multilateralism in the 90s and the jealous protection of sovereignty in 2010 reveal a difference in approach, interest, and values. Both approaches had antecedents in Canada's past--there have been Liberal unilateralism and nationalist rhetoric, too--but there are fundamental differences between Canadian policies in the 1990s and those adopted in the following decade. This book, part of The History of Canada series, explores the origins, creation, and development of the Arctic Council as a means of understanding those differences.
