Arctic Crime and Punishment

Inhabit Media | May 1, 2015 | 200 pages

In this latest edition in the In Those Days: Collected Writings on Arctic History series, Kenn Harper shares the tales of murderers, thieves, and fraudsters, as well as the wrongfully accused, in the early days of Northern colonization. In the 19th and 20th centuries, settler and Inuit ideas of justice clashed, leading to some of the most unusual trials and punishments in history. Included in this collection are the stories of criminals and victims, both southern and Inuit, and of the difficulties of finding justice in a land that was rapidly changing.
