Doctoral dissertation, University of Oslo, 2013, 339 p.

In his study of the history of the nickel industry in Northwest Russia, Rowe examines why the Pechenga area was annexed by the Soviet Union from Finland in 1944, how the Soviet state incorporated the local nickel resource in its industrial strategy and to which degree the resulting transboundary pollution was adressed through cooperative efforts in the post-Soviet era.
