This is the first reference guide to focus on the polar and cold regions of the world as a whole. It is divided into three sections. Part 1 provides an overview of the literature on polar and cold regions, analysing the nature of polar literature which exhibits certain unusual features, particularly in the role played by expedition reports. Part 2 is a select bibliography, and Part 3 is an international directory of organizations related to the subject. A detailed index completes the work.
