Annotation

Most of the novel is concerned with conflicts over the protection or development of Antarctica. But the novel ends with the agreement to establish a system that would be environmentally sound and put the future of Antarctica in the hands of those who care for it rather that companies concerned with making a profit. While there are few details and nothing on how it works out, the novel is regularly classified as a utopia.
