The conquest of the Russian Arctic

by Paul R. Josephson | 03 June 2014
Category: General History
Synopsis
Spanning nine times zones from Norway to the Bering Strait, the immense Russian Arctic was mostly unexplored before the 20th century. This changed rapidly in the 1920s, when the Soviet Union implemented plans for its conquest. This book, a definitive political and environmental history of one of the world's remotest regions, details the ambitious attempts, from Soviet times to the present, to control and reshape the Arctic, and the terrible costs paid along the way.
