About this book

&b;NHBS is World Distributor for the Ecotrends series&o;

Discusses problems and innovative solutions in a region of vital importance for the future of the planet. The Arctic region has, over a matter of a few years, been transformed from the Cold War front line to a leading example of peaceful international environmental co-operation. There is a growing awareness of the importance of the polar regions in global environmental change, with the Arctic being viewed as both a case history of Earth's ecological past and a window of warning about future environmental change. This book discusses current debates concerning sustainable development, environmental security, international law of the sea, and indigenous knowledge in the region.
