Summary

Many U.S. citizens and policymakers look to Alaska as a resource storehouse for the remaining years of this century and beyond. Yet, how much of the national need for energy, strategic minerals, fisheries products, and other renewable and nonrenewable resources can Alaska be expected to fill? Can Alaskans meet national demands while diversifying their economy and maintaining their region's unique environmental and ecological values? What choices are Alaska's policymakers being confronted with, and what national and international considerations will shape the outcome? In this book, experts explore these and related questions, examining the federal and state policies, economic and political constraints, and likely environmental and social consequences of Alaskan resources development during the next two decades.
