From the Publisher
"The book is laudable in its interdisciplinary approach, particularly the effort to combine energy policy issues with international relations analysis. It is also sensitive to the dynamic perspective underlying the interests of different stakeholders...the book will be of interest to international relations experts, China experts, policymakers and investors who want to obtain firsthand knowledge of the energy dynamics in the country." - I.A. Siddiky, Oil, Gas & Energy Law Intelligence, Vol. 9 - issue 5, October 2011
"If China’s foreign policy on energy is of concern to you, then Philip Andrews-Speed and Ronald Danreuther’s new book is indispensable. In 170 tightly written pages the authors synthesise their deep knowledge of Chinese domestic policymaking with a broad and sophisticated understanding of international relations. The result is a complex argument about how domestic and international considerations have interacted to shape the international behaviour of the Chinese government and of its oil companies. In contrast to most foreign policy discussions, the authors emphasize the importance of domestic policy considerations and path dependency in the energy sector in determining much of China’s international behaviour." - Deborah Seligsohn, Europe's World, Autumn 2011
"Andrews-Speed and Dannreuther’s book manages to convey a substantial amount of information on a technical subject without overloading the reader or making the book inaccessible to non-specialists... Of particular interest is the first section, outlining as it does China’s energy needs and policies, and the process and driving forces behind the internationalization of its energy industry... Andrews-Speed and Dannreuther’s book is broader in scope and offers an analysis more thoroughly based on the domestic context for China’s energy policy." - Jens Hein, Energy, Environment and Development Programme, Chatham House; International Affairs 87: 6, 2011
"China, Oil and World Politics should be of interest not only to those whose work narrowly focuses on energy issues, but to all academics and professionals who are seeking to grapple with how energy will impact the global security environment in coming decades." - C. Dale Walton; Comparative Strategy, 32:1, 89-90 (2013).
"Summing Up: Recommended. All readership levels." - Z. Zhu, CHOICE, March 2012
