As the Antarctic Treaty comes up for renewal and global warming increasingly becomes a reality, the polar regions have become the focus of renewed interest. Western policy in the Arctic regions has been well documented, but little is known of traditional Soviet policy in this area.The Soviet Arcticis the first book to consider Soviet policy in this region from a historical point of view. Pier Horensma analyzes the relationship between historic legacies and current Soviet Arctic policy, with particular emphasis on the Stalin period. The book also considers the international implications of Soviet policy and the effects of technological advance.
