M. Parvizi Amineh and Yang Guang (eds.) 2012. Secure oil and alternative energy. The geo-politics of energy paths of China and the European Union, Leiden: Brill, ISBN: 9789004218574 (hb)

Secure oil and alternative energy is the second and last volume coming out of a research project shared by the KNAW and the Chinese Academy of Sciences respectively. In their introduction, the editors argue that shared interests of China and the EU create conditions for cooperation between these large energy importers and point to the obstacles to overcome.
