Oil, Globalization, and the conflict for the Arctic safe haven examines the politics of drilling for oil in Alaska’s Arctic nationwide flora and fauna shelter, and provides this controversy as a precursor of destiny “resource wars” the place principles and values collide and polarize. The reader is brought to the first contributors concerned: worldwide enterprises, politicians, nongovernmental companies, indigenous peoples and businesses, and human rights/religious organisations. writer David M. Standlea argues in prefer of seeing this relatively “local” clash as a part of a bigger fight among the proponents of an alternate, optimistic imaginative and prescient for the longer term and an American tradition almost immediately prepared to sacrifice that destiny for instant profit.

David M. Standlea is an self reliant student who got his Ph.D. in Political Science/Political Ecology on the collage of Hawaii at Manoa.
