About the Contributors

What People are Saying About This

"Essential reading for policy makers in both energy consuming and energy producing countries."

Claude Mandil

"Essential reading for policy makers in both energy consuming and energy producing countries."

Ambassador Stuart E. Eizenstat

"Jan Kalicki and David Goldwyn have gotten the nation's and the world's leading energy experts to focus in a masterful and coherent way on the geo-political, economic, and environmental implications of the revolutionary changes in the global energy picture. This essential new edition describes how the U.S. has moved from being increasingly dependent upon oil imports to likely a net exporter of energy in coming years, due to a surge of domestic oil and gas production, greater energy efficiency, and increased use of solar and wind energy. For the first time in just one place, Jan and David provide an examination of the broader meaning of these profound changes to our nation's security and to our everyday lives. In the process, they have provided a profound service to the nation and to the world."

Maria van der Hoeven

"Required reading for those seeking to understand the strategic-level importance of energy interests and economics in the area of foreign policy. It will have a valued place on my desk."

Abdalla Salem El Badri

"In the eight years since the publication of the first edition of this book, there has been a profound change in the landscape for the U.S. oil and gas industry, an eastward shift in the global energy sector, and challenges to the environment from energy output and demand. The illustrious array of international energy experts contributing to the second edition provides a thorough, insightful, and compelling analysis of the new challenges and opportunities facing the world energy community today."

Strobe Talbott

"In this timely and useful second edition of their path-breaking book, Jan Kalicki and David Goldwyn have assembled a first-rate team of scholars and practitioners to provide the U.S. and the world with a roadmap for energy empowerment in the 21st century. The analysis is based on solid research, and the recommendations are well-written, well-organized, and cogently argued. A valuable contribution on an urgent subject."
