9780190212698: Myths of the Oil Boom: American National Security in a Global Energy Market (Studies in Postwar American Po)
Review:

Oil remains vital to global security. In this very readable book, Steve Yetiv dispels myths and provides a fascinating account both for analysts and for the general public. ( Joseph S. Nye, Jr, Harvard University Distinguished Service Professor, and author of Is the American Century Over?)

Steve Yetiv sets the record straight, exploding a number of misconceptions surrounding the politics and economics oil. In particular, he provides a well-timed corrective to exaggerated views about the potential contributions of the recent surge in U.S. oil output to national and international energy security. Along the way, the book offers a valuable primer on oil markets, the geopolitics of oil, and the true costs of oil dependence as well as the most promising approach for reducing oil insecurity. ( John Duffield, Professor of Political Science, Georgia State University)

An eye opening account of the impact of increased American oil production on international politics by one of America's foremost oil analysts. Neither a doomsayer nor a wild eyed optimist, Yetiv shows why and how changes in the supply of oil will directly affect American interests and world stability. A timely and invaluable work for anyone who wants to understand how oil shapes our lives. ( Steven David, Professor of Political Science, Johns Hopkins University)

A superb book on the changing dynamics of U.S. and global energy security and politics-wonderfully researched and written-a must-read for those interested in security studies, American foreign-policy, and international political economy. ( Patrick James, Dornsife Dean's Professor of International Relations, University of Southern California; former Vice President, International Studies Association)

From the Publisher:

The last decade has seen a far-reaching revolution in the oil industry, both in the US and globally. By some measures, America is on pace to become the world's biggest oil producer in the next decade, an outcome that was inconceivable just a few years ago. But does this shift mean that the US will no longer be beholden to foreign autocrats? That prices will go down for consumers? That the global oil supply is less susceptible to shocks?

In The American Oil Boom, Steve A. Yetiv, an award-winning expert on the geopolitics of oil, takes stock of our new era of heightened petroleum production and sets out to demolish both the old myths and misconceptions about oil as well as the new ones that are quickly proliferating. As he explains, increased production in the US will not lead to a reduction in prices, in part because oil is globally traded and OPEC will defend against low prices. America will not intervene less in the Persian Gulf just because it is producing more oil domestically. Saudi Arabia is less willing or able to play global gas pump to the world economy than in the past. Building an electric car industry does not mean that consumers will buy in, but neither is it true that a broad shift toward eco-friendly cars will have very little impact on greenhouse gas emissions. Most importantly, raising the level of domestic production will never solve America's energy and strategic problems, and may even worsen climate change, unless it is accompanied by a serious national and global strategy to decrease oil consumption. These are just some of the myths that Yetiv takes on in this panoramic account. This is not just an exercise in myth-busting, however; it's also a comprehensive overview of the global geopolitics of oil and America's energy future, cross-cutting some of the biggest security and political issues in world affairs.

Accessibly written and sharply argued, The American Oil Boom will reframe our understanding of the most politicized commodity in the world.
