Perils of Plenty

Arctic Resource Competition and the Return of the Great Game

Jonathan N. Markowitz

  • Provides the most complete theory to date of why some states have a stronger interest in projecting power to seek control over resources than others
  • Tests the predictions from this theory by leveraging a natural experiment caused by climate change in the Arctic that rapidly exposed natural resources in a contestable area
  • Employs three original quantitative datasets and in-depth qualitative case studies that rigorously demonstrate that states reacted to this shock as the theory predicted they would
