Big Oil Playground, Russian Bear Preserve or European Periphery?
The Russian Barents Sea Region towards 2015
Distributed for Eburon Publishers, Delft
The volume considers whether the international energy industry will transform Barents into a "big oil playground," if environmental protection rules will make it a "Russian bear preserve," or if integration into world trade will put it on the "European periphery." The result is a valuable resource for understanding the changing dynamics and challenges in modern public planning and a globalized economy.
