American oil diplomacy in the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea by Gawdat Bahgat( )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The United States is the world's largest oil consumer and importer. Here Gawdat Bahgat examines the nation's growing dependence on fossil fuels - particularly oil - and the main challenges it faces in securing supplies from two energy-rich regions, the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea. He argues that long-term U.S. energy strategy must be built on diversity of both the fuel mix and the geographic origin of that fuel. It should include a broad combination of measures that would stimulate domestic production, provide incentives for conservation, promote clean technologies, and eliminate political barriers to world markets."--Jacket
Proliferation of nuclear weapons in the Middle East by Gawdat Bahgat( )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why do some countries seek to acquire nuclear weapons? How can they be convinced to give up these aspirations? These are the underlying questions in Gawdat Bahgat's intriguing new study of nuclear proliferation in six key Middle East countries: Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Libya, and Saudi Arabia." "Bahgat looks at the economic and political forces that shape this threat to world peace and at the prospects - "Largely unrealistic," he says - of establishing a nuclear weapons-free zone in the region in the foreseeable future. While national security concerns are the main drive behind nuclear choices, other historical and military factors - including national pride, regime stability, and perceptions and attitudes of leadership - also contribute to weapons proliferation." "Though the situation in each country he examines is unique, there are similarities. Bahgat demonstrates that national security concerns must be addressed to reduce the incentives for proliferation - not only of nuclear weapons, but also of missiles and chemical and biological weapons."--Jacket

Energy security : an interdisciplinary approach by Gawdat Bahgat( )

15 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is split into four parts. Part I introduces the reader to the topic of energy security by providing a theoretical framework. It addresses climate change and gives a balanced view of both producers' and consumers' perspectives. Part II addresses energy security from consuming countries' perspective. There are chapters dedicated to the United States, the European Union, china, India, and Japan. Each examines the diversification of energy mix and energy sources, public institutions in charge of governing energy issues, and laws and other legislations that promote energy security and protect the environment. The next chapter will focus on the role the International Energy Agency has played in coordinating policy between nations. Part III addresses energy security from producing nations' perspective. Chapters cover the Middle East, Africa, Russia, and the Caspian Sea. These examine how producing regions seek to secure a steady income and stable revenues. This section will also discuss national oil companies and their cooperation/confrontation with international companies. The last chapter in this section will focus on the role the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) plays in promoting cooperation among major oil producers. The concluding chapter will address the joint efforts by consumers and producers to stabilize global energy markets and the different forums to promote such cooperation (i.e. International Energy Forum). The chapter will also provide a summary of the main findings of the study (i.e. the similarities and differences between the case-studies). Part IV concludes the book with a section on international energy outlook and information on the International Energy Forum"--Provided by publisher

Security and bilateral issues between Iran and its Arab neighbours by Anoushiravan Ehteshami( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and German and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a detailed analysis of the complicated relations between Iran and its Arab neighbours. Arab perceptions of Iran, its regional policies and role in the Arab region, have never been more complicated than today. How is one to make sense of the increasingly complex and at times tense relationship between Iran and its Arab neighbours? Given the strategic significance of this sub-region and the importance of relations between its states to international security, this edited volume systematically accounts for each Arab neighbour's perception, policies and approach towards the Islamic republic, for the first time providing a clear and detailed comparative analysis of these relationships. This book, bringing together a group of leading scholars of the region, not only provides a clear lens for the policy community through which to gauge the causes of change and the reasons for continuity in relations, but also offers an invaluable tool for scholars of the wider region and the growing community of researchers focusing on this sub-region

The changing security dynamics of the Persian Gulf by Kristian Ulrichsen( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The contradictory trends of the ‘post-Arab Spring' landscape form both the backdrop to, and the focus of, this volume on the changing security dynamics of the Persian Gulf, defined as the six GCC states plus Iraq and Iran. The political and economic upheaval triggered by the uprisings of 2011, and the rapid emergence of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria in 2014, have underscored the vulnerability of regional states to an intersection of domestic pressures and external shocks. The initial phase of the uprisings has given way to a series of messy and uncertain transitions that have left societies deeply fractured and ignited violence both within and across states. The bulk of the protests, with the notable exception of Bahrain, occurred outside the Gulf region, but Persian Gulf states were at the forefront of the political, economic, and security response across the Middle East. This volume provides a timely and comparative study of how security in the Persian Gulf has evolved and adapted to the growing uncertainty of the post-2011 regional landscape"--front flap
