Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The best single-volume guide to the problems of energy that I have come across. It is comprehensive, thoroughly researched, up-to-date, and, most important, provides readers with a coherent framework for making smart decisions about energy policy.”
Michael Klare, Hampshire College

"For too long geographers have neglected the study of energy. I, therefore, applaud Michael Bradshaw’s timely, wide-ranging and up-to-date book on the global energy challenge and the highly diverse ways that this is played out in different types of economy across the globe. Drawing on a wide range of literatures, he shows with great clarity that the relationships between energy, economy and the environment are complex and that to understand them geography matters."
Judith Rees, President of the Royal Geographic Society

"From a policy perspective, the book is a gem as it provides cogent grounds for context-specific responses that will likely serve the global commons best."
LSE Review of Books

"A highly readable, accurate, thoughtful and well-organized overview of a complex and urgent issue. How energy is managed in the years ahead may decide the welfare of humankind for generations. Understanding energy and climate change is critical to all sectors of social activity; reading this book provides that understanding."
Richard Matthew, University of California Irvine

"Michael Bradshaw has written a clear, engaging and accessible overview of current global energy dilemmas… Global Energy Dilemmas is a useful introduction, which traces the changing geographies of energy production and consumption from pre-industrialisation to the second decade of the new millenium."
Philip Kirby, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter
