Energy Developments in the Middle East

By Cordesman, Anthony H.

Westport Connecticut: Praeger, 2004. 308 pages with Notes and Index. illustrated with numerous charts and tables. From the publisher: "The Middle Eastern and North African region (MENA) dominates world energy exports today and will likely do so for decades to come, even if world consumers make steady progress in conservation, renewable energy sources, and increases from gas, coal, and nuclear power. The MENA region, however, has been the scene of both internal crises and external conflicts. On several occasions, these crises have affected either the flow of MENA energy exports or the development of energy production and export capacity. The politics, economics, and social dynamics that shape threats to regional stability are complex. Cordesman details the factors behind these diverse forces and outlines current supply levels and future trends, taking each of these variables into consideration.". First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.
