Energy and Security

Strategies for a World in Transition

second edition

Table of Contents


The second, completely updated edition of this widely read and respected guide is the most authoritative survey available on the perennial question of energy security. Energy and Security gathers today's topmost foreign policy and energy experts and leaders to assess how the United States can integrate its energy and national security interests.

This edition offers fresh analysis and insight into

• Fundamental shifts in the global energy balance • The revolution in shale gas and oil • New energy frontiers, from ultra deepwater to the Arctic • The rising agenda of safety concerns across the energy complex • Energy poverty • Infrastructure for modernizing power grids • Climate security in the current political and economic environment

The contributors offer a lively discussion of the challenges and opportunities presented by these changes and how they affect national security and regional politics around the globe.

Jan H. Kalicki is a senior scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center and Counselor for International Strategy at Chevron. He served previously as White House NIS ombudsman and counselor to the Department of Commerce in the Clinton Administration, where he played a leading role in Russian, Eurasian, and Middle East commercial energy issues. David L. Goldwyn is president of Goldwyn Global Strategies, LLC, an international consulting firm. From 2009 to 2011 he served as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs, where he created the Global Shale Gas Initiative and the Energy Governance and Capacity Initiative.

"Developing a strategy to secure reliable and reasonably priced energy must be among our nation's top critical priorities, and it's hard to imagine a more important contribution to the development of our policies than the analysis and proposals contained in Energy & Security. The second edition, completely updated with chapters by some of the most distinguished energy and foreign policy experts in the world, is a tour-de-force when it comes to the kind of fresh and rigorous thinking that ought to be applied to America’s foreign policy in the years ahead. It is essential reading for all who care about the most serious global challenges that will shape our nation."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"A balanced overview of the energy debate."

"The authors do an excellent job of describing the issues as seen in Washington, including analysis of the debates about what should be government policies. That is a welcome contrast to the shrill tone and extreme positions staked out by many authors addressing these matters."

"An important contribution to mutual understanding not only in energy but also in the broader realm of energy security and foreign policy."

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