"This book represents a remarkable feat of multiple authorsip that is also a groundbreaking contribution to knowledge.

As the Arctic ice cap recedes under the pressure of global climate change, the once obscure North Atlantic sphere of Danish influence administrative power is also breaking free of the icy hand of global indifference, scattering the floes of an outmoded and obscure form of colonialism in its wake.


Internal changes promise new and unanticipated - and often contested - futures for Iceland, Greenland, the Faroe Island, Norway, and Denmark itself. Exploring a vividly illustrated se of aspirations and setbacks through a veritable kaleidoscope of politics ideology, art literature, ecology, gender, sexuality, and affect writ large on international screens, the authors offer a challenging and critical view of the North Atlantic as a regions of infinite and newly assertive cultural possiblity".
