About the Author

Anne-Marie Brady is Professor in Politics and International Relations at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand and Global Fellow at the Wilson Centre, Washington DC. In 2014 she was appointed to a two-year term on the World Economic Forum's Global Action Council on the Arctic. She is editor-in-chief of The Polar Journal, and has published ten books and more than forty scholarly papers on a range of issues including China's modernised propaganda system, China's activities in the South Pacific, and competing foreign policy interests in Antarctica.


'Using Chinese and non-Chinese sources, Brady (Univ. of Canterbury, New Zealand) has written the first comprehensive English book on China's policies toward the Arctic and Antarctic. Recommended.' Z. Zhu, Choice
'Brady opens up a new frontier of insight into an area of international relations all but ignored by Western scholarship.' Andrew Erickson, Foreign Affairs
'Brady's fact-filled book is well-written and revelatory. It deserves a wide audience, for anyone interested in the future of either polar region will find it both instructive and interesting.' Jeff Rubin, The Polar Times
