Summary

This book explores the various dimensions of energy security in Asia – which has become an increasingly important geopolitical issue. Reputable international contributors look at the roles played by each of the major energy importers: the United States, China, Japan and India, as well as the main suppliers: the OPEC states, Russia, the Central Asian states and Australia. In each case, the domestic politics of energy security are investigated, and state interests and perspectives on the issue are considered.

Analyzing the policy and security aspects of energy security, the book includes an examination of:

  • the geopolitics of energy competition
  • strategic, economic and environmental dimensions
  • the impacts of energy security on human security.

With energy security being one of the central issues facing the world today, this book is a timely and impressive appraisal of the major energy security issues facing Asia.
