Reviews

'An invaluable way to advance our understanding of the Caspian oil and gas industry is by studying the objectives, strategies and policies of the main actors in its development - those of both companies and governments. Yelena Kalyuzhnova's book provides just such an examination, framed in the growing economic literature on management of natural resource wealth. The book is a timely resource for policy makers, investors and researchers with an interest in this important and expanding region and industry.' - Steven Fries, Chief Economist, Royal Dutch Shell, and Visiting Professor, Department of Economics, University of Oxford, UK

'At last we have a book which places the role of government and policy where it belongs: at the centre of the oil and gas development story. This is an impressively researched study; a sober and well-informed appraisal which does not attempt to over-hype the oil and gas potential of the Caspian region.' - Professor Jonathan Stern, Director of Gas Research, Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, UK
