520    "A groundbreaking exploration of the relationship between 
       humans and the natural world where two great economic 
       ideologies converge. Along the Bering Strait, through the 
       territories of the Inupiat and Yupik in Alaska, and the 
       Yupik and Chukchi in Russia, Bathsheba Demuth explores an 
       ecosystem that has long sustained human beings. Yet when 
       Americans and Europeans arrived with self-serving ideas of
       human progress, the Chukchi and Seward Peninsulas and 
       surrounding waters became the site of an historical 
       experiment. Here, the great modern ideologies of 
       production and consumption, capitalism and communism, were
       subject to the pressures of arctic scarcity. Whales and 
       walruses, caribou and fox, gold and oil: through these 
       resources Demuth draws a vivid portrait of the sweeping 
       effects of turning ecological wealth into economic growth 
       and state power over the past century and a half. More 
       urgent in a warming climate, and as we seek new economic 
       ideas for a postindustrial age, Floating Coast delivers 
       necessary warnings and poses provocative questions about 
       human desires and needs in relation to environmental 
       sustainability"--|cProvided by publisher.
