'By situating legal instruments and norms within the region's complex politics, diverse cultures, emergent economic sectors, and increasingly dynamic geophysical environment, Michael Byers has written an accessible but thorough guide to the region.' Philip E. Steinberg, Durham University

'This is a very informative and comprehensive book about contemporary international law as interpreted and applied to the Arctic region. Its components, including chapters on territorial issues, the delimitation of continental shelves, and the regulation of growing economic activities in a changing environment, make it both timely and of great intellectual and practical demand.' Alexander N. Vylegzhanin, Moscow State Institute of International Relations

'Michael Byers' impressive analysis of the legal issues pertaining to the Arctic is a must-read for everyone concerned with the future of this increasingly important region.' Geir Ulfstein, University of Oslo
