The Geopolitics of Resource Wars (Paperback)Philippe Le Billon (editor)
- We can order this
This new book provides fresh and in-depth perspectives on so-called 'resource wars'.
Highlighting the multiple forms of violence accompanying the history of resources exploitation, business practices supporting predatory regimes, insurgent groups and terrorists, this is an authoritative guide to the struggle for control of the world's resources.
It includes key conceptual chapters and covers a wide range of case studies including:
* the geopolitics of oil control in the Middle East, Central Asia and Columbia,
* spaces of governance and 'petro-violence' in Nigeria
* 'blood diamonds' and other minerals associated with conflicts in Sierra Leone and the Congo.
This book was previously published as a special issue of the journal Geopolitics.
