The Arctic has again become one of the leading issues on the international foreign policy agenda, in a manner unseen since the Cold War. Drawing on the perspectives of geopolitics and international law, this Handbook offers fresh insights and perspectives 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. Students, academics, political scientists and international lawyers working on Arctic affairs will find this ground breaking Handbook to be of essential reading. It will also be of interest to other social scientists, such as geographers, sociologists, and anthropologists.

`This Handbook marks a considerable achievement by the contributors, and the editors in particular, and is a welcome addition to the literature on the Arctic. The book strikes the right balance between the breadth of issues, states and interested parties covered and the depth that they are covered in. The range collected here is noteworthy in its empirical richness and should prove educational to postgraduate scholars, academics and policy practitioners, and in fact, anyone with a desire to have an up-to-date collection about the present political situation in the Arctic.' -- Sage Journals `This Handbook examines main fields / sections of Arctic politics from the point of view of the five littoral states of the Arctic (Ocean). Also an indigenous approach, which is relevant in the Arctic and unique in the global context, is discussed in a few chapters. I can recommend the book to post-graduate students, political and social scientists and international lawyers, who are already familiar with basic issues on the fields of international politics / IR, political science, international law, environmental politics, as well as the Arctic.' -- Lassi Heininen, University of Lapland, Finland and Thematic Network on Geopolitics and Security `This up-to-date and wide-ranging collection provides a cornucopia of information that will be indispensable for all those seeking to understand the profound changes occurring both in the Arctic itself and in the relationship between the Arctic and the rest of the world.' -- Oran Young, University of California (Santa Barbara), US `Decision-makers and academics interested in the politics of the Arctic should have this book to hand. It is a fascinating collection of well-researched chapters on the geopolitics, international law and institutions of the Arctic and national Arctic strategies. The authors, drawn from a wide range of backgrounds, cover subjects reflecting their expertise in this superbly edited volume.' -- Clive Archer, Advisory Council, Arctic Forum Foundation
