This new edition of Robert Bone’s The Canadian North: Issues and Challenges has been thoroughly revised and updated to highlight the most current issues facing Canada’s North and satisfy the renewed public interest in this region. Diamond mining, Arctic sovereignty, Aboriginal life, Megaprojects, and climate change are just some of the topics covered. Recent changes in the economic and political landscape of the Canadian North are also discussed. To ensure relevance and accuracy, 2006 Canadian Census data and statistics-the most recent available-are included. An updated art program contains informative new maps, photographs, and satellite images. Engaging new vignettes showcase the set of unique challenges the North faces. There is simply no other text on the market that provides such current, comprehensive, and cutting-edge coverage of the Canadian North. Distributed by Syndetic Solutions, Inc.
