From the Publisher:

Based on extensive research in the Arctic Russian region of Chukotka, Settlers on the Edge is the first English-language account of settler life anywhere in the circumpolar north to appear since Robert Paine's The White Arctic (1977), and the first to explore the experiences of Soviet-era migrants to the far north. Niobe Thompson describes the remarkable transformation of a population once dedicated to establishing colonial power on a northern frontier into a rooted community of locals now resisting a renewed colonial project. He also provides unique insights into the future of identity politics in the Arctic, the role of resource capital and the oligarchs in the Russian provinces, and the fundamental human questions of belonging and transience.

Thomas Merton's last complete book evolved from a 1948 work called WHAT IS CONTEMPLATION? about the importance of contemplation. It was rewritten in 1959 and revised in 1968, shortly before his death. The later versions of the book incorporate Merton's explorations into Eastern philosophy, drawing parallels between Catholic prayer and Buddhist meditation.
