By: David Fairhall
The Arctic: land of ice and the six-month day; irresistible goal for explorers and adventurers; enduring source of romance and mystery - and now also a poignant and unavoidable indicator of the impact of climate change. As the ice cap shrinks, the geography of the entire Arctic region changes: clear shipping channels replace immovable ice and inaccessible oil resources become available. What will be the long-term consequences of these cataclysmic changes - not only environmental but also social and political - and how will the global powers who wish to exploit the region's many assets respond? Cold Front offers a clear-sighted and penetrating investigation of the Arctic's pivotal role in international relations, placing the polar region in its historical, political and legal context.
Cold Front provides a fascinating and often intriguing account of the Arctic, both its history and its future. For anyone who wants to know more about the Arctic this well written and informative book provides both insight and answers. -- The Rt Hon Lord David Owen
