Why does China act as it does in its pursuit of energy security? Are ¿resource wars¿ inevitable? Going beyond traditional analyses that focus on China as a regional and global threat, Jean Garrison sheds new light on the roots of the country¿s energy policy and the constraints that it faces. Garrison eschews the zero-sum approaches that underlie much conceptualization of the subject, arguing that they are in large part based on the erroneous notion that China is a unitary actor with a coherent energy strategy. Her attention to the competing developmental and environmental priorities at play in China¿s domestic politics is a critical contribution to the global energy-security debate. -- Publisher description.

Drawing on cutting-edge research from leading scholars, this book investigates state preferences for regime creation and assesses state capacity for executing these preferences in Northeast Asia’s energy domain, defined as the geographical area comprising the following countries: Russia, Mongolia, China, Japan, South Korea and North Korea. It examines questions pertaining to how states perceive the need and necessity for establishing a regime when it comes to the issue of energy and how much commitment they make to the effort in Northeast Asia. The book analyses the factors that shape each country’s fundamental energy interests in the region, how these interests impact their attitudes toward engaging the region on energy security and the way they carry out their regional engagement. Based on countries’ interests in promoting institutionalized regional energy cooperation and their capacity for forging that cooperation, the collection assesses each state’s role in contributing to an energy regime in Northeast Asia. It then concludes with a critique on the decade-plus quest for energy security cooperation in Northeast Asia and suggests ways forward for facilitating regional energy security cooperation. This book will be of great interest to scholars and students of environmental policy, energy policy, security studies, Asian studies and international relations.

As the world moves toward the close of a turbulent twentieth century, the shadow of Asia's Deadly Triangle looms ever larger. Kent E. Calder shows how a combination of high-speed economic growth, impending energy shortages, and political insecurity are provoking an 'Arms Race Asia' and deepening geopolitical rivalries across the region, tensions that urgently require collaborative efforts at stabilization. Kent Calder explores the linkage between East Asia's economic growth and its extreme lack of accessible energy resources, which make it the world's most rapidly expanding oil and gas importer. He shows how these energy insecurities could lead Asia toward a struggle for off-shore oil and the subtle dangers that deepening regional energy dependence on the Middle East may bring, already exemplified by recent arms deals between Iran and China. The author also points to the links between efforts to acquire civilian nuclear power and the potential for nuclear armament. The history of this region is laden with conflict, and the author succinctly explains how these tumultuous age-old relationships will affect the area's volatility today. He provides a dynamic overview of where each country is headed politically, and states definitively what role the West should play in these developments.

With the Arab Gulf States supplying the major proportion to Asian energy needs, Gulf-Asia links will emerge as a key factor in the global energy scenario. What are the economic and strategic implications of Asia's growing dependence on Gulf oil? How far can Asian countries counter such dependence by improving energy efficiency and developing new sources? What are the energy transitions that Asian nations are undergoing? This book seeks to address these questions and other issues relating to the Asian energy sector including supply security, consumption trends, privatization moves, energy diversification, energy self-sufficiency and foreign investment.
