Originating from a series of workshops held at the Alaska Forum of the Fourth International Polar Year, this interdisciplinary volume addresses a host of current concerns regarding the ecology and rapid transformation of the arctic. Concentrating on the most important linked social-ecological systems, including fresh water, marine resources, and oil and gas development, this volume explores opportunities for sustainable development from a variety of perspectives, among them social sciences, natural and applied sciences, and the arts. Individual chapters highlight expressions of climate change in dance, music, and film, as well as from an indigenous knowledge–based perspective.

Review:

“The essays are accessible and engaging, providing a comprehensive introduction to many of the challenges facing Alaska today. Even for those of us who consider ourselves engaged in such research and such discussions and debates, North by 2020 offers a refresher and an update of what is happening in fisheries, oil and gas, indigenous knowledge, and more.” (Henry Huntington, Huntington Consulting, Eagle River, AK)

“An ambitious and successful undertaking. . . . The book takes a holistic approach, and pulls together an impressive array of scientists and authors, with a broad range of background, expertise, scientific disciplines and approaches to the study and understanding of people and nature.” (Grete K. Hovelsrud, Nordland Research Institute)

“Ambitious. . . . [North by 2020] captures the state of the art in the rapidly developing trans-discipli­nary enterprise of understanding, interpreting, and iden­tifying adaptive options for social-ecological systems at Alaska’s high latitudes.” (David W. Norton Arctic)
