Long at the margins of global affairs and at the edge of our mental map of the world, the Arctic has found its way to the centre of the issues which will challenge and define our world in the twenty-first century: energy security and the struggle for natural resources, climate change and its uncertain speed and consequences, the return of great power competition, the remaking of global trade patterns, In The Future History of the Arctic , geopolitics expert Charles Emmerson weaves together the history of the region with reportage and reflection, revealing a vast and complex area of the globe, loaded with opportunity and rich in challenges. He defines the forces which have shaped the Arctic's history and introduces the players in politics, business, science and society who are struggling to mould its future. The Arctic is coming of age. This engrossing book tells the story of how that is happening and how it might happen,through the stories of those who live there, those who study it, and those who will determine its destiny.
