The Green Roosevelt:

Theodore Roosevelt in Appreciation of Wilderness, Wildlife, and Wild Places
Zachary Michael Jack
ISBN: 9781604976939

A handful of collections of Roosevelt’s outdoor writings published to date have mostly followed two well-worn paths: Roosevelt the Sportsman and Roosevelt the Adventurer. This nature-appreciative anthology, then, aims to show a kinder, gentler TR, a man who, importantly, rendered false the supposed divide between sportsman and naturalist. Read More..

International Relations and the Arctic:

Understanding Policy and Governance
Robert W. Murray and Anita Dey Nuttall
ISBN: 9781604978766

"This is a fantastic and elaborate collection ... this book is right on time. ... The good news about the present volume is that it does not simply treat the region as just another case of the appplication and replication of paradigmatic international relation (IR) theories. Rather, the book shall "throw light on how the Arctic as an area of study contributes to the IR discipline.' The contributors have done a great job doing so and their efforts will be of great interest to both the Arctic studies community and IR scholars." - Polar Record Read More..
