5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Alexei Nekrassov on February 24, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author is a professor of geopolitics, and the book has strong emphasis on Antarctic governance and geopolitics. If you're interested in these topics, you will like the book more than I did. I on the other hand, would prefer the author devoted more space than he did to discovery, exploration and modern science of Antarctic.

Amazon doesn't list Table of Contents, so here it is:
Defining the Antarctic 1
Discovering the Antarctic 23
Claiming and negotiating the Antarctic 48
Governing the Antarctic 69
Doing the Antarctic science 89
Exploiting and protecting the Antarctic 109
Further reading 133
Index 137
