The Arctic is now considered a single region encompassing the periphery of North America, northern Europe, and Russia, but the anthropologists, geographers, and historian of science represented here have found no unified Nordic or Scandinavian science of the region. They do uncover some of the cultural rituals and strategies by which the sciences have figures in the domination and appropriation of northern people and territories. Annotation c.
