Synopses & Reviews
Energy in Europe and Russia is in flux. This book presents a rich set of case studies for analyzing the complex and intertwined regional dynamics of multiple actors, levels, and policy fields in energy throughout Europe and Russia, with the aim of offering an alternative view to the prevalent geopolitical or neoliberal approaches.
"Moving beyond traditional approaches this book firmly locates the study of energy within International Political Economy. It is a highly innovative collection of essays that marks a more nuanced understanding of topical issues in energy and governance." - Professor Richard Higgott, Vice Chancellor Murdoch University, Perth, Australia"By bringing together a world class range of scholars this book provides a valuable and highly diverse range of perspectives on one of the 21st century's most challenging and important topics. It reaches beyond questions associated purely with EU-Russia energy relations, as well as opening up the analysis of energy governance to the crucial fields of climate change mitigation, energy efficiency and development." - Dr Joseph Stanislaw, CEO, The JA Stanislaw Group and Independent Senior Advisor, Energy and Sustainability, Deloitte LLC, USA "By refusing to underplay the complexities of energy governance in Europe and Russia, this volume emerges as a rich and thought provoking analysis. As a whole, it manages to provide contextualised explanations for energy governance change, differing political approaches to energy, as well as ways in which energy policy is coming to take account of climate change mitigation objectives." -Professor Catherine Mitchell, Energy Policy Group, University of Exeter, UK
