5.0 von 5 Sternen overwiev of human history in the arctic, 19. April 2010
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Last Imaginary Place: A Human History of the Arctic World (Taschenbuch)
In this book Robert McGhee gives an overview of the history of humans in the Arctic. He starts with different concepts of the Arctic in Southern (ie. European) societies, and their evolution in time. Then he describes the movement of humans towards the Arctic, thereby disputing the classical argument that weaker societies were pushed towards the Northern periphery by stronger ones, while arguing that after the ige age such peoples just stayed within their known environment, which, due to increasing temperatures, simply moved towards the poles. After various, interesting chapters on native Northern societies, mainly in Asia and North America, McGhee deals with European and North American exploration in the Arctic and their consequences, from Frobisher through the exploitation of Svalbard until the cold war. Although personally I preferred the auhtor's more detailed account of early human societies in the Arctic (see Ancient People of the Arctic), this book gives an interesting overview of the history of the North and is written very well.
