Product description


A charismatic rising star vividly relates the big challenges facing the world (Jared Diamond)

Smith's planetary palm-reading would be impressive enough but he also manages to pull it off with literary gusto. He combines a wide-angle-lens analysis reminiscent of Jared Diamond with a knack for narrative, including tales of numerous visits to the Arctic. (New Scientist)

The best new geography book of the year (Fred Pearce)

a lively and impressive book (Wall Street Journal)

'One of the most head-turning books I've ever come across recently.' (World Politics Review)

It's refreshing to read a book that avoids the twin dangers of exaggeration and wishful thinking. The New North is such a book, and it's wonderful. [...] This is an outstanding book. (Jonathan Wright Geographical Review)

Smith spent many months exploring and talking to residents in remote Arctic towns and writing their personal stories, and the result is this fascinating book. (Press Association)

Let those who disagree come forward and make a different case. There is a lot for us to do in the meantime. (Sir Crispin Tickell Financial Times)

[Smith's] new book The New North: The World in 2050, demonstrates a remarkable knack for divining global megatrends from the stuff of daily life. It seems this is a man to whom the world whispers its secrets. (Jake Wallis Simons The Times)

[The New North] raise[s] urgent questions about the type of world we want to live in. (PD Smith Guardian)
