Energy and the Transformation of International Relations, Toward a New Producer-Consumer Framework

Global energy relations between producers and consumers are evolving with the end of the era of cheap energy, rising demand in Asia, and greater awareness of global warming. The changing situation will have a powerful impact on relations between energy producers in the Middle East, Russia, Latin America, and Africa, and traditional consumers in the US and Europe as new consumers in China and India enter the stage. This book provides a comprehensive analysis of what these changes in the energy sphere mean for international politics. It argues that while conflict over resources is possible, there are numerous possibilities for cooperation, including in the spheres of increased efficiency and alternative sources of fuel.
