Skating on Thin Ice Book Summary/Review:

In 1921, when he was 11 years old, Anatol Rapoport attempted to ice skate out of Russia to freedom in Poland. Caught by border guards and turned back, he decided to try again with the help of professional Army smugglers. This bittersweet story of emigration, by the famed psychologist and mathematician known for his work in game theory, is set against the background of the Russian revolution and civil war. Poignant accounts of life in the Ukraine and Crimea, stories of Red and White Army soldiers bivouacking in his home, and a 200-mile train ride that takes 13 days in the comfort of a boxcar make this Canadian/American author's story unforgettable.

But as global warming threatens the ice caps’ integrity, the polar bear has also come to symbolize the environmental peril that has arisen due to harmful human practices. In the past twenty years alone, the world population of polar bears has shrunk by

On Thin Ice explores the shifting relationship between the Inuit and the modern state in the North American Arctic, and it pays tribute to pioneering IR theorist Ken Waltz's elucidation of the "Three Images," with the addition of a new "Fourth Image" to describe a tribal level of analysis that remains salient in not only the Arctic, but in other conflict zones where tribal peoples retain many attributes of their indigenous sovereignty.
