This book examines Arctic defense policy and military security from the perspective of all eight Arctic states. In light of climate change and melting ice in the Arctic Ocean, Canada, Russia, Denmark (Greenland), Norway and the United States, as well as Iceland, Sweden and Finland, are grappling with an emerging Arctic security paradigm. This volume brings together the world's most seasoned Arctic political-military experts from Europe and North America to analyze how Arctic nations are adapting their security postures to accommodate increased shipping, expanding naval presence, and energy and mineral development in the polar region. The book analyzes the ascent of Russia as the first 'Arctic superpower', the growing importance of polar security for NATO and the Nordic states, and the increasing role of Canada and the United States in the region.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Arctic Security in an Age of Climate Change is an articulate, flowing and comprehensive commentary on the real and complex Arctic 'state of play', and hence, a breath of fresh air into the academic debate ... One innovation of the book is that each chapter explores a particular national or global viewpoint ... This book explores all the angles and is an excellent resource for getting familiar with an internal and external perspective.' Tavis Potts, International Journal of the Society for Underwater Technology
"James Kraska, an outstanding military intellectual, presents here a rich collection of essays offering international perspectives by leading authorities on a neglected subject of immense importance to Americans and others." - John Curtis Perry Henry W. Denison Professor of History The Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy, Tufts University
