Extreme Tourism by Godfrey Baldacchino
Book DescriptionThis book is a pioneering investigation of the tourism practices in the world's other, cold water, islands. Located in extreme latitudes and subject to extreme weather conditions, these islands have been developing their tourism appeal in manners that appear sustainable. They present themselves in images that speak to the pristine, unique and superlative aspects of their natural environment, history and culture. Limited seasonality, difficulty of access, restricted infrastructure, harsh climates and water too cold to swim in, are integral features of the tourism industry, often welcomed as appropriate filters to the slide to the mass market. The collection contains 13 island case studies. A set of seven hail from Northern latitudes: Baffin (Nunavut, Canada), Banks (Northwest Territories, Canada), Greenland/ Kaalaalit Nunaat, Iceland, Lulea (Sweden), Nunivak (Alaska), Solovetsky (Russia) and Svalbard (Norway). A second set of four cover the Southerly islands of Chatham (New Zealand), Falklands, Macquarie (Australia) and Stewart (New Zealand). Two other chapters discuss islands from the particular vantage points of cruise ship tourism, one for the Arctic region and one for the Antarctic. Additionally, five conceptual chapters provide insights into key tourism management issues, as they apply to cold water island experiences:(a) human resources; (b) environment; (c) promotion; (d) seasonality; and (e) access.

Case for Non-Sovereignty, Paperback (September 2014)
This is the first collection to look critically at sub-national island jurisdictions. It examines their multi-level governance, international diplomacy, disaster management, offshoring strategies, economic development, and other expressions of negotiation and engagement with larger players, especially with metropolitan parent states.
Independence Movements in Subnational Island Jurisdictions, Hardback (May 2013)» View all books by Godfrey Baldacchino
The dynamics for any moves for political independence in the 21st century are very different from those of the 20th. The aspirations of former colonies to independence are grinding to a halt; the rationale for self-determination is increasingly driven by strategic and pragmatic economic arguments, and not so much by nationalist appeals.
