A Historical and Legal Study of Sovereignty in the Canadian North
Terrestrial Sovereignty, 1870-1939
Table des matières
Dr. Gordon W. Smith dedicated much of his life to researching Canada's sovereignty in the Arctic. This first volume of his work provides the most comprehensive documentation yet available on the post-Confederation history of Canadian sovereignty in the north.
I strongly recommend this present volume to all Canadians and others interested in issues of Canadian Sovereignty in the Arctic
-Colonel (Ret’d) Brian K. Wntzell, Canadian Naval Review
“The book is a significant contribution to the field of Arctic studies whether those studies involve history, law, political science or other cognate areas where questions of Canadian sovereignty over the Arctic lands are mooted. It is a critical part of Canadian history and while there have been recent books on some of the contents of the manuscript, none approach the depth of what Smith accomplished. This is a major and brilliant piece of work on a subject of high interest and importance nationally and globally. ”
