New Book Reviews in Northern Studies: The Northern Review, Spring 2010
In an effort to generate discussion in the northern studies community about recent works in the field, book reviews from the upcoming Spring 2010 issue of The Northern Review have been published on the homepage of the Northern Research Network (NRN) website. Book titles and reviewers are listed below. The NRN homepage is here: NRN members will also find the reviews in the book reviews section of the website.
Authors and others are encouraged to respond to the reviews in writing. Responses will be edited by the book review editor of The Northern Review and posted on the NRN website in an effort to stimulate constructive discussion. For details, contact the book reviews editor, Brad Martin, at  

In the near future, book reviews published in print by The Northern Review will be available on the new journal website.

The Northern Review is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary journal concerned with exploration of human experience in the North. Yukon College publishes the journal twice a year, in spring and fall.
