Editorial Reviews

Review

"In this comprehensive book, Byers addresses ownership of the oil and gas reserves in the Beaufort Sea, the Arctic activities of the Russians (we shouldn't feel threatened), and the not-so-burning question of who owns tiny Hans Island. As an Arctic-issues primer, this timely, cogent, focused work cannot be beat."—Globe and Mail, Ken McGoogan

Format: Paperback
The Ice is melting! And, sure enough, the international competition is heating-up for the acquisition
of important resources. The possession of oil, gas, and metals mandate a geopolitical 'race' particularly
to Russia's advantage.

All littoral Arctic Countries would benefit from peaceful and cooperative agreements.

This well written book helps one to understand!

Reading this book is excellent preparation for visiting the arctic, or just excellent reading for understanding more of the world.

I'm only giving this 3 stars because I had a hard time reading it. It was required reading for a college course. Although the material was interesting, when I could make sense of it; I suppose it just isn't my cup of tea. There are others who would find this book fascinating!
