About the Author

ADRIAN HOWKINS is Assistant Professor at Colorado State University


"The Arctic and Antarctic are truly poles apart, but they share interesting concerns, which their very contrast helps illuminate. By comparing their environmental histories, Adrian Howkins has brought them together in ways that everyone concerned with our shared Earth can appreciate. A valuable contribution to both polar studies and environmental history." Stephen J. Pyne, Arizona State University "Compelling portraits of the Arctic and Antarctic, past and present. A talented story-teller, Howkins offers a fast-paced journey to the ends of the Earth." Ronald E. Doel, Florida State University "The polar latitudes are among the final frontiers for environmental history. Hawkins' book, as much history of science and exploration as environmental history, takes us on a most engaging tour to both Arctic and Antarctic." J.R. McNeill, Georgetown University "A useful and innovative contribution to this growing literature. It is highly recommended." Environmental History
