'This is the most comprehensive reference tool focusing on the Arctic to be published since the 16-volume Encyclopedia Arctica... This important resource is one of the most thorough... Highly recommended for academic and public libraries.' - Library Journal 'To say this three-volume set is one of a kind would be an understatement... Everything you ever wanted to know about the Arctic... I commend the contributors, editor, and the publisher for publishing a massive product that will have many years of application...a perfect source for virtually all libraries... Arctic historians and scholars will find this book an absolute necessity.' - The Polar Times

'Offers unique coverage of an important area of the world... The treatment is thorough and topics are explored from a variety of perspectives... The articles are scholarly and academic but will engage the interested lay reader...

A definite purchase for both academic and larger public libraries.' - Against the Grain
