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.

The Arctic: land of ice and the midnight sun; irresistible goal for explorers and adventurers; enduring source of romance and mystery - and now also a poignant and imperative 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 are the long-term consequences of these cataclysmic changes - not only environmental but also political and social? How will the lives of those who depend on the natural resources of the Arctic be changed? And how will global powers who wish to exploit the region's many assets respond? In August 2008, for the first time in recorded human experience, the two historic routes across the Arctic Ocean - the North-East Passage known to the Russians as the 'Northern Sea Route', and the North-West Passage through the Canadian archipelago - were simultaneously open and ice-free. This rare coincidence caused widespread alarm, prompting fears of renewed competition between Russia and the West over control of the arctic region. Cold Front assesses this impending arctic metamorphosis and its profound effect on international geo-politics. As well as the environmental drama that may accompany an ice-free North Pole - melting glaciers, rising sea levels and severe meteorological disturbance including the possible disruption of the Gulf Stream - David Fairhall explores the potential military, legal and economic implications which could be equally dramatic. Cold Front is not just another attempt to predict the outcome of global warming. It 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. The thawing the of the ice cap creates huge opportunities for trade and transport - and therefore potentially also for conflict between the arctic nations. This important and timely addition to the literature on the region will be essential reading for anyone interested in humanity's effect on the Arctic - or the Arctic's effect on humanity.

Soon after sinking a Nazi troop transport, a Soviet submarine hits a mine. Its engines are disabled and the current inexorably drives it towards an enemy-held shore. Incredible as it may sound, the crew make a sail from canvas hoods and fix it to the periscope. With a fair wind filling it, the makeshift sail takes the crippled submarine out of the range of the shore batteries, giving a sister-submarine time to save her crew. Rear-Admiral Ivan Kolyshkin recalls many other narrow escapes. During the war he was in command of a Division and then a Brigade of submarines of the Northern Fleet. He speaks of his comrades-in-arms Gadjiev, Fisanovich, Vidayev and other famous submariners, whom he accompanied on long and dangerous war patrols. He writes of commanders and political instructors who trained men for battle, and of the ardent Soviet patriotism that inspired sailors to greats feats of heroism.

Arctic marine ecosystems are among the most productive and most vulnerable in the world, both from an economic and ecological perspective of growing accessibility. The complexity of Arctic marine ecosystems and their location poses challenges for management, valuation, and the establishment of sound policy to protect them. This special issue of Temanord presents papers from a workshop devoted to this topic. In October 2013, a group of multidisciplinary experts on marine invasive species and the Arctic came together in Esbjerg, DK for a two-day workshop titled: “Marine Invasive Species in the Arctic: Management Issues.” Attendees of the workshop came from academic, governmental and scientific institutions in Denmark and the Faroe Islands, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Canada, and the United States. This volume presents papers based on the presentations of the workshop speakers.
