4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Arctic century is upon us. A great jockeying for power and influence has erupted among nations in the high north. At stake are trillions of dollars in profit or loss, US security, geopolitical influence and the fate of a fragile environment as well as the region's traditional people. As the ice melts and oil companies venture north, the polar regions may become the next Panama Canal, the next Arabian Peninsula-places on earth that remain relatively unknown in one century and become pivotal in the next. Now Shell oil plans to sink exploratory wells in the pristine waters off the North Slope of Alaska--a site that the company believes contains three times as much oil as the Gulf of Mexico. The Eskimo and the Oil Man tells this story through the eyes of two men, one an Įupiat Eskimo leader on Alaska's North Slope, the other the head of Shell Oil's Alaska venture."--Jacket
