International relations professor Steve A. Yetiv delivers an oil policy wonk’s dream: a clear, detailed position paper presenting the factors affecting US energy security and future oil price stability. He loads his book with in-depth data and offers geopolitical scenarios encompassing sovereign countries, the world’s major oil producing cartels and independent national producers. Yetiv makes the powerful argument that the best way to improve America’s future oil price and supply security is to cut its reliance on oil. Richly sourced and featuring an extensive index, this dense work presents a sophisticated understanding of the true state of oil and its discontents. Yetiv’s work isn’t a casual read, but you can get a lot of mileage from it. getAbstract recommends his perceptive overview to energy industry professionals and energy traders, geopolitical experts, policy makers and leaders of nongovernmental organizations.
