The New Geopolitics of Natural Gas by Edward L. Morse

Today, geopolitics is being driven by the race to secure access to natural gas supplies. This was not always the case. For much of the 20th century, geopolitics was driven by the struggle for control of oil supplies. But now, natural gas is displacing oil as the world’s leading fuel, and its geopolitics is very different.

Natural gas is abundant, and its price is relatively stable. It emits far less carbon dioxide than oil or coal, making it an attractive fuel for a world trying to address climate change. And it is increasingly being used to generate electricity, as more and more countries move away from dirtier coal-fired power plants.

As a result, the global race for natural gas is on. Countries are scrambling to secure supplies, build infrastructure, and lock in long-term contracts. The United States, which has emerged as a major producer of natural gas, is well positioned to benefit from this new geopolitics.

The Struggle for Africa: The New Scramble for Resources in a Divided Continent by Lydia Polgreen

In recent years, Africa has become the site of a new scramble for resources, as international investors seek to tap into the continent’s vast reserves of oil, gas, minerals, and farmland. This new wave of resource extraction has coincided with a growing divide between Africa’s rich and poor, as well as a rise in political instability and conflict.

In her new book, « The Struggle for Africa: The New Scramble for Resources in a Divided Continent, » New York Times journalist Lydia Polgreen chronicles the recent history of Africa’s resource wars, and the impact they are having on the continent’s people.

Through on-the-ground reporting and intimate portraits of the people caught up in Africa’s resource conflicts, Polgreen shows how the new scramble for Africa is exacerbating divisions within societies and fueling a new wave of violence. She also offers a glimpse of hope, as she documents the efforts of ordinary Africans to resist the exploitation of their resources and build a more just and equitable future for all.

The Geopolitics of the Middle East by Bernard Lewis

In recent years, the Middle East has been in the news more often than any other region in the world. The “Arab Spring” of 2011, the civil war in Syria, the rise of the Islamic State, and the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians have all captured headlines. But what is the Middle East, and why is it so important?

The Middle East is a region of the world that includes the countries of the Arabian Peninsula, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and Turkey. The region is home to more than 400 million people, making it one of the most populous in the world.

The Middle East is important for a number of reasons. First, it is home to two of the world’s major religions, Islam and Christianity. Second, it is a major supplier of oil and gas, which are vital to the global economy. Third, the region is a key crossroads between Europe, Asia, and Africa, making it a strategic location for trade and military conflict.

The Middle East has been the site of many major wars and conflicts in recent history, including the Iran-Iraq War, the Gulf War, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The region has also seen a rise in terrorist activity in recent years, with groups like the Islamic State carrying out numerous attacks.

The Middle East is a complex and volatile region, and its importance is likely to continue to grow in the years to come. Bernard Lewis is one of the world’s foremost experts on the Middle East, and in this book he provides a detailed and insightful analysis of the region’s history, politics, and culture.
