about

The most comprehensive and richest study undertaken so far of the factors and conditions that will determine the scope and range of shipping and shipping activities in Arctic waters now and in the future. Furthermore, it is the first study comparing the three Arctic transportation corridors, covering a variety of interacting and interdependent factors such as:

- geopolitics, military affairs, global warming, sea ice melting, international economic trends, resources, competing modes of transportation, environmental challenges, logistics, ocean law and regulations, corporate governance, jurisdictional matters and rights of indigenous peoples, arctic cruise tourism and marine insurance.

Editorial Reviews

From the book reviews:"It is not only a very complete interdisciplinary analysis of the region, but also a very user-friendly 'handbook' for anyone with a shipping, commercial, legal, scientific, or policy-oriented interest in one of the least-studied regions of the world. . The book is richly illustrated with a number of maps and other figures . . This book will be required reading for anyone with an interest in Arctic development generally and in Arctic shipping operations specifically." (Edgar Gold, Journal of Maritime Law & Commerce, Vol. 45 (2), April, 2014)
