Alaska at 50 commemorates Alaska's statehood anniversary with essays from some of today’s most noteworthy writers and researchers. Divided into the areas of art, culture, and humanities; law, economy, and politics; and environment, people, and place, it is comprehensive in its scope. Editor G.W. Kimura has assembled an impressive cast of contributors. Each had the freedom to be as creative and bold as his or her topic and expertise allowed. When their individual insights are gathered together in this timely volume, the resulting mosaic is an eloquent portrait of Alaska since statehood and a thought-provoking vision for the next fifty years.
