Mr. Macdonald's well-organized symposium asks more questions that it answers, but that is no more than to say that it is a pioneering work… and one that reflects great credit on its sponsors and contributors." Times Literary Supplement
"In summary, this book is a profound treatise on the many facets of the Arctic, documented by references, quotations from legislative acts, treaties, debates, and other writings. I recommend this book to the student seeking specific information concerning such topics as sociological, economic and technological changes, the military significance, and the development and exploration of the Arctic. The general reader who is interested in world affairs will find this reading very informative. Explorers' Journal
The Arctic Frontier not unexpectedly raises far more issues than it solves, but the book is well worth the effort that went into its planning and preparation. The high quality of the essays and their distinguished sponsorship should ensure their being read where they can do the most good — that is, among policy makers in the circumpolar nations.
