Editorial Reviews

'For long on the margins of the study of international politics, natural resources have made a comeback over the last decade, in tandem with the rise of prices and the politicization of global markets. Pulling together some of the leading experts in this vast field, this collection of essays stands out for its thoroughness, critical acumen and comprehensive review of the relevant scholarly literature.' - International Affairs
