Arctic Futures : The New Geopolitics of Energy, Hardback Book

Arctic Futures : The New Geopolitics of Energy Hardback


As the polar ice melts, so the rich gas, oil and mineral resources of the Arctic are being increasingly exposed to the eager eyes of interested nations.

Markers are being laid as the Arctic begins to be reconfigured as the basis for European and North American energy security. Arctic Futures is the first book to explore this new geopolitics of energy.

What is the extent of oil and gas in the Arctic? How might sustainable management of these resources be achieved?

Just what is the future of Arctic energy? The author explores the changing legal, scientific and environmental regimes that surround the Arctic and analyses their geopolitical consequences.

The result is essential reading for researchers, policy makers, governments and commercial enterprises seeking an informed, detailed and up-to-date account of one of the most important issues of the day.
