There is much to be admired in this volume. Few edited collections are willing, much less able, to bring together contributors from around the world (inter alia China, Africa, South America, Mexico, USA and Australia)...the book's excellent parts are such that the volume will deserve to be on library shelves and specialists' desks. * Navraj Singh Ghaleigh, Journal of Environmental Law 21:3, 2009 *
Arguably there are few issues as pertinent, complex and cross-cutting as the current global energy situation.. there are too few books around which analyse these globally significant issues in any depth. [This] is a balanced, honest appraisal of many of the key challenges and issues...Importantly, it neither provides just a green gloss...nor does it hide the reality that the vast majority of the world need energy and carbon-sources will continue to be one of the easiest means by which that can be provided...If you are prepared to engage with the broader debate and openly accept that "one size doesn't fit all" - as the book argues - this is an edited collection that is well worth keeping in mind. * Duncan French, University of Sheffield; Environmental Liability *
This welcome volume makes a wide-ranging and interesting contribution to scholarly endeavours in the field of Energy Law, with particular reference to the challenges of developing the energy system beyond its current heavy reliance upon (hydro)carbon fuels and the role that the law can play in facilitating (as well as hindering) this transition...further work from the various authors in this field is eagerly awaited * Angus Johnston, University of Cambridge, Web Journal of Current Issues *
