Key topics discussed include resource extraction, regime formation, kwledge construction, border issues, governance and treaties, and indigeus livelihoods. Contributions from scholars of history, geography, political science, anthropology and international law make this a truly comprehensive take on the current state and future prospects of both the polar regions and polar geopolitics as a distinct discipline. Students and professors of geopolitics, political science and geography - especially those with an interest in the polar regions - will find much of value in this book's concrete expression of a new and fascinating field.
