"The Barents Sea, which harbour s the Soviet northern fleet, has been marked by military activity and East-West tension ever since the Second World War. In the early 1980's oil exploration in the Norwegian and Soviet sectors of the Barents Sea introduced a new factor of commercial as well as strategic importance to this area, and it is in the light of this change that this analysis of Soviet energy policy, military interests and needs is made. An assessment is made of the importance of the Barents Sea as an energy option for the Soviet Union, focusingon domestic demand for oil and also the needs of foreign trade, having reg ard to the effects of the Chernobyl disaster. A discussion follows of the conflicting military and civilian interests in the Barents Sea. The authors aim to improve Western understanding of the relationships between Soviet military and civilian interests, and the factors likely to influence Soviet decision makers in this area. This book contains up-to-date topical information, including maps, and an appendix detailing Soviet purchases from abroadof offshore equipment." (from the dj). Contents : 1.
