The mixture of extremely high oil prices, increasing demand for oil from a growing China, and continued global insecurity makes for interesting times ahead. This book examines oil and security from a variety of thematic and regional perspectives. The chapters address questions like, for example, what does China's increasing appetite for oil mean for US security? How does Venezuela fit into Western security frameworks? How secure are offshore oil platforms? What are the tensions and potentials in Saudi Arabia? What is the relationship between oil and failed states? What are Europe's concerns about oil supplies? What are the implications of changes in the Russian oil sector?
