Productbeschrijving

Achterflaptekst

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Prize and The Quest reveals how climate battles and energy revolutions are mapping our future A new type of Cold War is emerging between China and the West. . The global order is being simultaneously shaken by climate change and the shale revolution in oil and gas - and now by the coronavirus. Controversial fracking technology has given America unprecedented leverage as the world's leading energy powerhouse, ahead of Saudi Arabia and Russia, upending the chessboard of global politics and changing the psychology of the global economy. Despite being weighed down by sanctions, Russia is pivoting east toward China as Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping unite to challenge America and lay claim to almost all of the South China Sea, one of the world's most critical trade routes. Elsewhere, the map of the Middle East created after World War I is being attacked by ISIS and Iran's Revolutionary Guards as the region struggles to come to grips with the recent oil price collapse caused by the rise of shale. Oil producers, from the Middle East and Moscow to corporate boardrooms around the world, now fear that peak demand for oil is coming as renewable energy vies with fossil fuels. The New Map tells a sweeping story about how the role of energy in climate change is shaping geopolitical discussions, challenging our industries and our lifestyles, and accelerating a second energy revolution - the quest for renewables. It also brings realism to the debates over the energy transition. --Deze tekst verwijst naar de paperback editie.

Recensie

“This should be mandatory reading for President-elect Joe Biden’s incoming team.” —Admiral James Stavridis

"A master class on how the world works." -
NPR

“[The New Map] 
earned energy’s highest literary prize for its ambitious survey and realistic assessment of energy and how it shapes all of human affairs. It is also an exceptional literary triumph in its narrative and in the quality of writing that we have come to expect from Dan Yergin.” —The American Energy Society, in awarding Daniel Yergin “Energy Writer of the Year”

“The veteran energy analyst Daniel Yergin has turned his considerable talents to explaining how the world continues to be shaped by oil in his latest book, 
The New Map: Energy, Climate, and the Clash of Nations . . . Reportorial and supremely readable—no mean feat among geostrategy tomes.” Wall Street Journal 

“At a time when solid facts and reasoned arguments are in retreat, Daniel Yergin rides to the rescue. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author and energy savant is armed to the teeth with enough telling statistics to sink an oil tanker in "The New Map: Energy, Climate, and the Clash of Nations" (Penguin Press, 512 pp., ★★★★ out of four) . . . Yergin provides an engaging survey course on the lifeblood of modern civilization — where the world has been and where it is likely headed. By the final page, the reader will feel like an energy expert herself.”
USA Today
 
“Brisk and authoritative, an impressive combination.” – 
The Economist

The New Map is a kaleidoscopic survey of seemingly every geopolitical development in recent (and not so recent) history, all seen through the lens of energy, national rivalries, changing technologies, and the looming threat of climate change . . . Yergin, the vice chairman of the energy research powerhouse IHS Markit, is strongest when it comes to oil and gas, still the mainstays of the world’s energy supplies now and in the decades to come. Even readers familiar with the U.S. “shale gale” will find new gems in his retelling of the pioneers who shattered shale to unleash a revolution. Russia, today leveraging oil and gas the way it once wielded Marxist-Leninist ideas, also provides great grist for Yergin, as do China’s energy-driven forays into the South China Sea . . . Admirable, well-researched, highly readable examination.” Foreign Policy 

The New Map is a must-read for those who are national security experts or aspire to be. Why? Because most national security professionals, this one included, have deep expertise on certain issues or regions, but we do not have it across the full range of the world’s most pressing issues. In The New Map, Yergin demonstrates this global mastery. He reviews critical historical decisions of key nations and international coalitions, as well as the inflection points where opportunities were lost or created, bringing us to today’s geopolitical environment. In the telling, the reader gains a much broader understanding of other nations’ historical perspectives, their leaders’ goals in the new world order, and how both factors influence nations’ actions today . . .Do yourself a favor, read this one. You’ll be glad you did.” Cipher Brief

“At its heart, “The New Map,” by Daniel Yergin, is a book about power: both in the sense of power as fuel to move cars, tractor-trailers and oceangoing ships, to run factories and light up cities; but also power in the sense of political power, that nations wield to drive their economies toward opening up to world markets or to becoming more protectionist and insulated, to exert their influence over the trading patterns of their neighbors, and to wage war or work for a peaceful and mutually prosperous co-existence with the rest of the world.” –
Houston Chronicle

  “A lucid, judicious overview of global energy and its discontents.”
Publishers Weekly

“Yergin delivers a fascinating and meticulously researched page-turner . . . Required reading. Another winner from a master.”
Kirkus, Starred Review --Deze tekst verwijst naar de hardcover editie.

Beoordeeld in het Verenigd Koninkrijk op 20 april 2021
Pages falling out at every turn. This made it difficult to read and means that I now have to bin this after one read; what a waste!

To the editor/ binder: stop this game to earn more profit at the expense of the readers and the environment, or you will force us to ebooks and your printing business will cease to exist!
