Handbook of the Politics of the Arctic

Cheltenham, Edward Elgar, 2015, 620 p.

The Arctic has again become one of the leading issues on the international politics agenda, in a manner unseen since the Cold War. Drawing on the perspectives of geopolitics and international law, the book offers fresh insights on the most pressing issues, grouped under the headings of political ascendancy, climate and environmental issues, resources and energy, and the response and policies of affected countries. With the combined expertise of leading scholars in international relations and international law of the Arctic, the book covers key topics such as climate change, energy, indigenous issues, jurisdiction, marine resources, pollution and preparedness, and emergency response.
