Lester B. Pearson wrote that "the war and the airplane have driven home to Canadians the importance of their Northland, in strategy, in resources and in communications." They have learned, according to Pearson, that the earth is still round and that the shortest routes between many important spots in it lie over the North Pole. And since then, these facts have become commonplace. This article seeks to reexamine the premises which have made the Arctic a focus of military strategy and which have diverted so much of polar research away from the traditional cooperative inquiry after truth which still characterizes the Antarctic.
