The Business and Politics of Energy

by Ustina Markus

About this book

Understanding the relationship between business and politics in the oil and gas industry requires a good knowledge not only of the commodities themselves but also of the energy business and the global political economy. Oil & Gas: The Business and Politics of Energy equips readers with that knowledge, explaining how the oil and gas industries work and the politics behind the global fossil fuel trade.

Offering a comprehensive overview of this complex industry, the book will enable readers to improve their understanding of the relationship between state interests and business interests in the industry, and will dispel some of the many myths associated with the global oil market.
