About this book


‘This timely book gathers a great selection of seasoned and up-and-coming scholars to present a well-rounded view on recent developments in the IPE of oil and gas. It is particularly its global outlook that will make this book a valuable source for students of energy and IPE alike.’

—Andreas Goldthau, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK

‘The case studies in this collected edition will be a valuable source to scholars and decision makers interested in the broader nexus of energy governance, energy security and the role of resources in development.’

—Adnan Vatansever, The King`s Russia Institute, King’s College London, UK

This book addresses energy research from four distinct International Political Economy perspectives: energy security, governance, legal and developmental areas. Energy is too important to be neglected by political scientists. Yet, within the mainstream of the discipline energy research still remains a peripheral area of academic enquiry seeking to plug into the discipline’s theoretical debates. The purpose of this book is to assess how existing perspectives fit with our understanding of social science energy research by focusing on the oil and gas dimension.
