Working together under the highly successful Antarctic Treaty of 1949, the United States and other nations have quietly and peacefully pursued exploration and scientific research in Antarctica. Frank Klotz examines Antarctica before the 1959 treaty, and then scrutinizes the operation of the treaty itself. In doing so, he notes that three significant challenges to continued cooperation in the Antarctic have arisen despite the years of international cooperation. First, as the world has become more aware of dwindling natural resources, the modest discoveries in the Antarctic are attracting more attention. Second, certain nations, not signatories to the treaty, have questioned the right of the treaty members to control resource development. Third, disputes over territorial sovereignty remain to be resolved. As competition for resources increases, the issue of "who owns the Antarctic" could lead to contention. This thoughtful study provides a sound framework for crafting a U.S. strategy on these emerging Antarctic issues.
