Editorial Reviews


Shaffer and Ziyadov have put together a broad scope of understanding of the difficulty in identifying the impact of natural resource accumulation on economic performance and governance. Of particular note are the chapters describing the natural resource curse; a perspective on Norway, and the attempt to empirically estimate the causal relationship between the curse and international conflict. A useful supplemental text for graduate courses on energy or environmental economics and an appropriate addition to collections supporting energy economists -B. J. Peterson, CHOICE Magazine

"Beyond the Resource Curse foursquarely addresses the question of what resources can do—or not do—for a country. The novelty of the data—the contributors treat a broad array of cases that are seldom thought about—along with the freshness of the analysis and the eclectic mix of topics and countries discussed, makes this a truly refreshing volume."—Svante Cornell, Johns Hopkins University
