The Northern Sea Route As A Shipping Lane 2017
This book analyses the current and future viability of the Northern Sea Route as a stable transport route for the international transit traffic between Europe and the far East. It includes the present conditions, defining and evaluating viability factors for using the Northern Sea Route (NSR). The book makes a projection for NSR in the future, taking into account the climatic change in the Arctic findings presented in the IPCC report. This study, based on the author's PhD thesis, analyses meteorological, hydrologic, bathymetric and other data for the evaluation of the navigation criteria. It is intended for a wide spectrum of readers, from students and scientists of Earth sciences and polar geography, navigation, political science researchers and politicians interested in Arctic affairs.
Tribal Territory, Sovereignty And Governance
While tribal territory and sovereignty guide the approaches of tribal governments, their ability to govern depends on other factors, such as leadership and economic development.
Through historical and political geography, the author examines how the erosion of tribal territory has affected tribal sovereignty on the Cheyenne River and Lake Traverse Indian Reservations. In particular, the book analyzes the concept of Indian Character as used by the United States Supreme Court in deciding diminishment cases involving the two reservations. The Court concluded that the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation has maintained its Indian Character while the Lake Traverse Indian Reservation has not. On the basis of Indian Character, the Court determined that the Lake Indian Reservation was diminished and, therefore, that the exterior borders of the reservation no longer define the tribe's territorial jurisdiction.
Through a study of the approaches, organizational structures, and services of the two tribal governments, the author explores how the tribal governments have worked through the constraints of their eroded territory and sovereignty to provide effective leadership and governance.
