Editorial Reviews

Review

"Editors Luft and Korin (Institute for the Analysis of Global Security) and 20 co-contributors offer a timely and comprehensive look at the role of energy in modern life and the different approaches countries employ to maintain energy security. The overview of the energy system also examines the growing concern over its vulnerabilities. Essentially, the book provides a debate regarding resource conflicts and control by covering issues such as terrorism, maritime security, the role of multinationals in energy security, security through diversification of sources, and development of alternative energy. It also explores the tradeoffs inherent in domestic and foreign policy required to maintain a safe, affordable energy supply."

Reference & Research Book News



"The book sets out to give the reader a bird's eye view of the world's energy system and its vulnerabilities, and it delivers. Chapters are well structured and to the point. A sense of common purpose and structure is maintained throughout the book, also when authors argue different points and in different ways….This book gives energy security the attention it deserves: right in the middle of international politics."

OGEL



". . . offers compelling evidence about the scope of energy security as it is perceived by countries and organizations. . . . This book offers plenty of information--covering piracy/terrorism, Russia, Europe, and the US--will give readers a sense of the control to be exerted by those who control energy resources. . . Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers."

Midwest Book Review

Review

"People serious about America's national security and economic strength must be serious about energy security. From corruption and anti-Americanism fueled by oil revenues, to political blackmail over supplies, to outright conflict, energy considerations are critical to most of today's most pressing foreign policy challenges. Gal Luft and Anne Korin have brought together leading thinkers on energy security in this remarkable collection spanning geopolitics, economy and technology. This timely and comprehensive volume is a one stop shop for anyone interested in one of the most important issues in international relations."
