The Seventh Continent: Antarctica in a Resource Age
The Seventh Continent: Antarctica in a Resource Age

[A] penetrating work. Hers is an intricate political tapestry woven from national pride and rivalry, glittering but transient sources of wealth, the ways of military and civil authority, and a pervasive sense of daring, adventure and discovery.
Philip Morrison, Scientific American, July 1986

This handsome book provides timely and valuable information about the forces shaping the [A]ntarctic future. All the major players are analyzed...Shapley skillfully uses the results of original research in U.S. government archives presenting one of the most comprehensive analyses to date of the political debate among nations and environmental organizations.
James N. Barnes, Defenders, May/June 1985
