Front Cover
Hanne Petersen, Birger Poppel
Ashgate, 1999 - Business & Economics - 375 pages
This is a discussion of issues, processes and values which have been of general importance in the 20th century, and which have become especially important in the Arctic region during the last few decades of the 20th century. The book employs a regional perspective and as such deals with issues of special relevance and pertinence for populations of the Arctic. The problems and perspectives are however also of interest for indigenous peoples in general, as well as relevant for populations living under different types of self-government and home rule regimes. The book focuses on the interrelationship between political and economic concepts of dependency and autonomy and the concept of sustainability.
