Book Description

30 May 2012
Oil and natural gas are now acknowledged to be the driving forces of international politics. What has not yet been fully explored is how their delivery affects the geopolitics of the world. Pipelines, once built, create new diplomatic realities - some states are newly connected, others isolated. Some states benefit economically, others lose out. Often new energy supply routes fall across political fault-lines, as in the case of India and Pakistan. In the case of the former Soviet Union, the existing pipeline network reflects an old political reality, and causes tension between the newly independent states and their former Russian master. With energy demand soaring in industrialising Asia, and the resurgence of great power rivalry, the politics and practicalities of pipelines become central to a proper understanding of world affairs. In this groundbreaking book, Rafael Kandiyoti takes us along the pipeline networks, from Kandahar to the Caspian basin, from Ceyhan to China, and shows us how they form the foundation of the new geopolitical order. In the process, he demonstrates that the issue of energy supply revolves not only on hydrocarbon resources but also on their delivery. This is an entirely new way to view the international politics of oil and natural gas and therefore crucial to any explanation of the tensions involving Central Asia, the Middle East, Russia, China and Europe.

This book is about pipelines in many of the oil and gas producing countries. The aurthor takes the reader into the political and geographical regions of concern such as Nigeria with its pipelines being tampered with and secondary pipelines in Iraq and other parts of the Middle East. The only thing I wish the book had are more maps so the reader can get a general ideal of the area the aurthor talks about. There are maps but most of the maps start at the begining of each chapter, however the aurthor talks about many oil and pipeline localities but don't offer maps to illustrate his point. Overall I enjoyed this book, it was something different that I usually read but in this day and age you wonder why gas prices are so high and the book points that out.
