Alaska at 50: The Past, Present, and Future of Alaska Statehood (Hardcover)
In 2009 Alaska celebrates its fiftieth anniversary of U.S. statehood. To commemorate that milestone, "Alaska"" at 50" brings together some of today's most noteworthy and recognizable writers and researchers to address the past, present, and future of Alaska. Divided into three overarching sections art, culture, and humanities; law, economy, and politics; and environment, people, and place "Alaska"" at 50" is written in highly accessible prose. Illustrations and photographs of significant artefacts of Alaska history enliven the text. Each contributor brings a strong voice and prescription for the next fifty years, and the resulting work presents Alaskans and the nation with an overview of Alaska statehood and ideas for future development.
