On Thin Ice explores the shifting relationship between the Inuit and the modern state in the North American Arctic, and it pays tribute to pioneering IR theorist Ken Waltz’s elucidation of the ‘Three Images,’ with the addition of a new ‘Fourth Image’ to describe a tribal level of analysis that remains salient in not only the Arctic, but in other conflict zones where tribal peoples retain many attributes of their indigenous sovereignty.
