About the Author

Heather E. Hudson is professor of public policy at the University of Alaska Anchorage and a Sproul Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley in 2015.


"Connecting Alaskans is a riveting story of how the people of a distant, isolated, and inhospitable land overcame isolation to emerge as leaders in adopting new digital ways of doing things, from telemedicine to distance education and government. It is also a book whose importance goes far beyond one state and one technology. As Hudson shows in masterly fashion, Alaska has been a major success story for public and private sector collaboration in infrastructure, and a model that applies to other regions and platforms around the world. For all concerned with economic development, this book is an essential guide."--Eli Noam, professor of finance and economics and director of the Columbia Institute of Tele-Information, Columbia University Business School
"Connecting Alaskans is a timely contribution to international discussions about the transformational power of broadband. Effective telecommunication links have the power to erase distance as a barrier and in vast geographic areas like the Arctic, that is incredibly important to the safety, health, education and economies of rural residents. Hudson has provided the historical and analytical perspective for readers to better understand what has happened in the 20th Century and what needs to happen in the 21st Century to carry on the tradition of innovation."--Fran Ulmer, chair of the US Arctic Research Commission; former chancellor of the University of Alaska Anchorage; and former lieutenant governor of Alaska
