The strategic implications of China's energy needs by C. P Andrews-Speed( )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 1,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China is frequently described as a threat to regional and global stability and its rapidly rising demand for imported energy is seens as one cause of this threat. This book shows that domestic politics and foreign policy have both played a part in China''s recent major energy policy decisions. However, China''s increasing involvement in the global energy markets can be seen as an opportunity to enhance cooperation and interdependence rather than as a threat

The Iranian nuclear crisis : avoiding worst-case outcomes by Mark Fitzpatrick( )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in English and held by 982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper explains how Iran developed its nuclear programme to the point where it threatens to achieve a weapons capability within a short time frame, and analyses Western policy responses aimed at forestalling that capability. Key questions are addressed: will the world have to accept an Iranian uranium-enrichment programme, and does having a weapons capability mean having the Bomb? For nearly two decades, Western strategy on the Iran nuclear issue emphasised denial of supply. Since 2002, there has also been a demand-side dimension to the strategy, aimed at changing Iran's cost-benefit calculations through inducements and pressure. But the failure of these policies to prevent Iran from coming close to achieving nuclear-weapons capability has promoted suggestions for fallback strategies that would grant legitimacy to uranium enrichment in Iran in exchange for intrusive inspections and constraints on the programme. The paper assesses these "second-best" options in terms of their feasibility and their impact on the proliferation risks of diversion of nuclear material and knowledge, clandestine development and NPT break-out, and the risk of stimulating a proliferation cascade in the Middle East and beyond. It concludes that the risks are still best minimised by reinforcing the binary choice presented to Iran of cooperation or isolation, and strengthening denial of supply

China rising : nationalism and interdependence by David S. G Goodman( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China's dramatic economic growth since the 1970s has seemed inexorable. The resulting rise in international profile has provoked a lively argument regarding the fundamental economic and strategic challenges to the rest of the world that China now presents. China Rising examines the extent to which China's future foreign policy stance may be shaped by its own agendas and constrained through interdependence and interaction with the outside world. It considers the Chinese foreign policy establishment's reactions to interdependence, the roles of the Army in foreign policy, the development of the navy, arms control policy, resource dependency, China's role in international trade and economic organizations, and its role in the region

Fuelling war : natural resources and armed conflict by Philippe Le Billon( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A generous endowment of natural resources should favour rapid economic and social development. The experience of countries like Angola and Iraq, however, suggests that resource wealth often proves a curse rather than a blessing. Billions of dollars from resource exploitation benefit repressive regimes and rebel groups, at a massive cost for local populations. This Adelphi Paper analyses the economic and political vulnerability of resource-dependent countries; assesses how resources influence the likelihood and course of conflicts; and discusses current initiatives to improve resource governance in the interest of peace. It concludes that long-term stability in resource-exporting regions will depend on their developmental outcomes, and calls for a broad reform agenda prioritising the basic needs and security of local populations
