“The chapters provide an interesting and novel analysis of core Arctic security questions and engage the actors that contribute to this security in new ways. Providing a brief overview of key issues in accessibly written format … the book makes a compelling case for first, being skeptical of the prevailing narratives around Arctic security and militarism; second, noting the need for a humancentric approach to Arctic security; and third, identifying the limitations of traditional approaches to Arctic security.” (Arctic, December, 2016)
