9780471969921: Geopolitics of Antarctica: Views from the Southern Oceanic Rim

Recent controversies over the political and environmental management of the Antarctic ensure that it will remain an important global issue. Drawing on recent developments in critical geopolitics and cultural geography, Klaus Dodds examines the six major nations of the Southern hemisphere currently involved in the Antarctic. Each of these nations - Argentina, Australia, Chile, India, New Zealand and South Africa - claims a 'natural' interest in the future of the polar continent. Geopolitics in Antarctica presents a detailed exploration of the rhetoric and politics behind each of these claims, arguing that they are often based on uncritical understandings of territory, geographical proximity and national identity. The book concludes with an examination of how geographical understandings of the Antarctic continue to influence the management of the frozen continent and Southern Ocean.

From the Publisher:

This book analyzes the geopolitical and geographical perspectives on the Antarctic adopted by various "Southern" states. It will examine how often simple forms of geographical reasoning have been employed in order to explain and justify these "states" involvement in the Antarctic region. Furthermore, it demonstrates that a rhetoric of territoriality and geographical proximity underscores most of the major pronouncements of states such as Argentina, Australia, India and South Africa. On the basis of such forms of reasoning, policies and resources have been invested in order to demonstrate that a particular state has a quasi-natural interest in the region.
