Riassunto: A powerful collection of voices and images from the frontlines of the war against ecological devastation in the Arctic. First-person narratives from nearly prominent activists, writers and researchers who address issues of climate change, resource war and human rights with stunning urgency and groundbreaking research. Over recent years the Arctic has been a battleground for an international war over natural resources and it still remains one of the most contested lands in the world. Arctic Voices is a window into this beautiful, endangered region.
"The Earth and her beings have been speaking. But we failed to listen. Arctic Voices compels us to listen. We will stay deaf at our peril."
—Vandana Shiva, founder of Navdanya and author of Staying Alive: Women, Ecology and Development
"A marvelous work, a marvelous land—hear the voices that call us to save these jewels of our planet."
—James E. Hansen, director of NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and author of Storms of My Grandchildren: The Truth About the Coming Catastrophe and Our Last Chance to Save Humanity
"One of the great strengths of Arctic Voices is that it shows how Alaska and the Arctic are tied to the places where most of us live. In this impassioned book, Banerjee shows a situation so serious that it has created a movement, where 'voices of resistance are gathering, are getting louder and louder.' May his heartfelt efforts magnify them."
—Ian Frazier, The New York Review of Books
“Part of our failure to recognise the dangers at stake is that the Arctic still tends to be perceived as a big barren desert of ice, apolitical and disconnected from our political concerns, up for grabs. The book Arctic Voices: Resistance at the Tipping Point offers an encyclopedic approach to reframe such understandings.”
—Manuela Picq, Al Jazeera
“Their reverence for, and connection to, the earth—its animals, water, mountains and land—is beautifully described in Arctic Voices, and each essay is as much a prayer as a call to activism.”
—Eleanor J. Bader, Truthout
"Just in time, then, comes Banerjee's latest volume, Arctic Voices, a wakeup call from 39 artists, writers, biologists, Alaska Natives and activists [...] the eyewitness accounts and reports in Arctic Voices question the wisdom of relying on fossil fuel fixes, urging restraint in our approach to the nation's last great wilderness area."
—Michael Engelhard, High Country News
"Right from the beginning I’m emotionally connected with this book [...]"
—The Environmental Blog
