EN SAVOIR PLUS Résumé

Based on Shelagh Grant’s thirty years of groundbreaking archival research on Arctic sovereignty and her reputation as a leading historian in the field, Polar Imperative: A History of Arctic Sovereignty in North America is a definitive overview of the many attempts by many countries to claim sovereign rights over the polar regions of North America. Unlike numerous other books on the subject, this authoritative volume covers Alaska and Greenland as well as Canada, balancing the implications of major changes in climate, science and technology, and international law against the competing ambitions of those countries seeking sovereign rule of the Arctic.

Of particular importance is Grant’s use of archival documents to reveal previously unpublished details surrounding Britain’s 1880 transfer of the Arctic islands to Canada, and the identity of those who firmly secured Canadian title to the archipelago in 1925. By comparing the actions of various governments over two millennia, she concludes that Arctic sovereignty has historically depended less on legal interpretation or military might than on the ice cover that restricted access to adjacent waters, and the speed with which countries have acted to assert sovereign authority.

Polar Imperative is a thought-provoking challenge to all readers to consider what is needed to adapt existing sovereign rights to current realities while protecting the fragile Arctic environment from irreparable damage. With a refreshingly multinational perspective, Grant clearly places the onus for action on the leadership of those Arctic countries with the most to lose—Canada, Russia, Greenland/Denmark, the United States, and Norway—and reminds us that there is little time to waste.
