In this extensively researched account, Nikolai Kingsley sets out his detailed and often controversial assessment of politics in the Arctic in the period 2007-2013. The author examines the ways in which the Nordic States have confronted the security challenge of the Russian Federation as it returns to a position of military strength. For the first time, leaked diplomatic cables, as well as news media, are used to uncover the true state of relations between East and West in the High North. The findings presented stand in stark contrast to official government statements which stress that the Arctic is a region of low tension, free from serious security concerns. Nikolai Kingsley (b. 1986) is an aspiring Norwegian researcher who writes on foreign policy issues. He completed his Master's degree in International Relations at the University of Cambridge in 2011. Singing from Another Hymn Sheet is his first published work. He currently lives and works in the United Kingdom.
