about this item

As the ice around the Arctic landmass recedes, the territory is becoming a flashpoint in world affairs. New trade routes, cutting thousands of miles off journeys, are available, and the Arctic is thought to be home to enormous gas and oil reserves. The territorial lines are new and hazy.

This book looks at how Russia deals with the outside world vis a vis the Arctic. Given Russia's recent bold foreign policy interventions, these are crucial issues and the realpolitik practiced by the Russian state is essential for understanding the Arctic's future.

Here, Geir Hønneland brings together decades of cutting-edge research - investigating the political contexts and international tensions surrounding Russia's actions. Honneland looks specifically at region-building and environmental politics of fishing and climate change, on nuclear safety and nature preservation, and also analyzes the diplomatic relations surrounding clashes with Norway and Canada, as well as at the governance of the Barents Sea.

The Politics of the Arctic is a crucial addition to our understanding of contemporary international relations concerning the Polar North.
