Global resources : Conflict and cooperation

Global resources : Conflict and cooperation / Roland Dannreuther and Wojciech Ostrowski. Palgrave McMillan, 2013, 296 p. £60

Description (© Palgrave) :

Oil, gas and minerals are vital natural resources which meet crucial human needs. Modern civilisation would struggle to survive without readily available access to these resources at reasonable and affordable prices. This volume provides critical insights into the dynamic processes of conflict and cooperation in relation to oil, gas and minerals, recognising that there is no easy and clear separation between areas of cooperation and of conflict and that these relations co-exist in complex and continually evolving ways. The contributors argue that the nature of conflict and cooperation is increasingly being shaped by the shift towards state capitalism in many parts of the resource-producing world.
