The Strategic Implications of China's Energy Needs (Paperback): Philip Andrews-Speed, Xuanli Liao, Roland Dannreuther The Strategic Implications of China's Energy Needs (Paperback)
Philip Andrews-Speed, Xuanli Liao, Roland Dannreuther
R649 Discovery Miles 6 490 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

China is frequently described as a threat to regional and global stability and its rapidly rising demand for imported energy is seen as one cause of this threat. This book shows that domestic politics and foreign policy have both played a part in China's recent major energy policy decisions. However, China's increasing involvement in the global energy markets can be seen as an opportunity to enhance cooperation and interdependence rather than as a threat.

Toward Sustainable Development - An Ecological Economics Approach (Paperback): Philip Andrew Lawn Toward Sustainable Development - An Ecological Economics Approach (Paperback)
Philip Andrew Lawn
R1,173 Discovery Miles 11 730 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

By now, most people in the ecological and environmental fields have heard of sustainable development, but how many know how we go about getting there, and if we are achieving it? By synthesizing the many disparate elements of the field of Ecological Economics, Toward Sustainable Development: An Ecological Economics Approach combines analysis, theory, and empiricism to answer the whats, whys, and hows of moving towards sustainable development. Since the ecological economics approach to sustainable development is still a relatively new paradigm, its long-term success rests heavily on the formalized establishment of the most basic and fundamental principles. This volume discusses the formation of these principles and their implementation in the real world. Lawn establishes the ground-rules by showing that development need not be achieved at the expense of ecological sustainability. He presents the tools, guidelines, and conceptual framework necessary to move toward sustainable development. Filled with figures, tables, and illustrations, Toward Sustainable Development: An Ecological Economics Approach systematically develops a conceptual framework from which to design workable policies. The author shows that development and ecological sustainability don't have to be trade-offs but can be complimentary and outlines a range of economic and non-economic indicators to measure performance.

Philip Andrews-Speed, Raimund Bleischwitz, Tim Boersma, Corey Johnson, Geoffrey Kemp, …
R3,061 Discovery Miles 30 610 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

In addition to environmental change, the structure and trends of global politics and the economy are also changing as more countries join the ranks of the world's largest economies with their resource-intensive patterns. The nexus approach, conceptualized as attention to resource connections and their governance ramifications, calls attention to the sustainability of contemporary consumer resource use, lifestyles and supply chains. This book sets out an analytical framework for understanding these nexus issues and the related governance challenges and opportunities.

It sheds light on the resource nexus in three realms: markets, inter-state relations, and local human security. These three realms are the organizing principle of three chapters, before the analysis turns to cross-cutting case studies including shale gas, migration, lifestyle changes and resource efficiency, nitrogen fertilizer and food systems, water and the Nile Basin, climate change and security and defense spending. The key issues revolve around competition and conflict over finite natural resources. The authors highlight opportunities to improve both the understanding of nexus challenges and their governance. They critically discuss a global governance approach versus polycentric and multi-level approaches, and the lack of those dimensions in many theories of international relations.

China, Oil and Global Politics (Paperback): Philip Andrews-Speed, Roland Dannreuther China, Oil and Global Politics (Paperback)
Philip Andrews-Speed, Roland Dannreuther
R1,193 Discovery Miles 11 930 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

China's rapid economic growth has led to a huge increase in its domestic energy needs. This book provides a critical overview of how China's growing need for oil imports is shaping its international economic and diplomatic strategy and how this affects global political relations and behaviour. Part One is focused on the domestic drivers of energy policy: it provides a systematic account of recent trends in China's energy sector and assesses the context and processes of energy policy making, and concludes by showing how and why China's oil industry has spread across the world in the last fifteen years. Part Two analyses the political and foreign policy implications of this energy-driven expansion and the challenges this potentially poses for China's integration into the international system. It examines a number of factors linked to this integration in the energy field, including the unpredictabilities of internal policymaking; China's determination to promote its own critical national interests, and the general ambition of the Chinese leadership to integrate with the international system on its own terms and at its own speed. The highly topical book draws together the various dimensions of China's international energy strategy, and provides insights into the impact of this on China's growing international presence in various parts of the world.

Whether understood in a narrow sense as the popular works of a small number of (white male) authors, or as a larger more diffuse movement, twenty-first century scholars, journalists, and activists from all 'sides' in the atheism versus theism debate, have noted the emergence of a particular form of atheism frequently dubbed 'New Atheism'. The present collection has been brought together to provide a scholarly yet accessible consideration of the place and impact of 'New Atheism' in the contemporary world. Combining traditional and innovative approaches, chapters draw on the insights of philosophers, religious studies scholars, sociologists, anthropologists, and literary critics to provide never-before-seen insights into the relationship between 'New Atheism', science, gender, sexuality, space, philosophy, fiction and much more. With contributions from Australia, Germany and the United Kingdom, the volume also presents diversity in regard to religious/irreligious commitment, with contributions from atheists, theists and more agnostic orientations. New Atheism: Critical Perspectives and Contemporary Debates features an up-to-date overview of current research on 'New Atheism', a Foreword from Stephen Bullivant (co-editor of The Oxford Handbook of Atheism), and eleven new chapters with extensive bibliographies that will be important to both a general audience and to those conducting research in this area. It provides a much-needed fresh look at a contentious phenomenon, and will hopefully encourage the cooperation and dialogue which has predominantly been lacking in relevant contemporary debates.

This book assesses China's reputation as a global clean energy champion, and applies institutional and public policy theories to explain how the country has achieved so much and why there continue to be so many unintended consequences and constraints to progress. It considers the extent to which the government has successfully boosted the manufacture and deployment of low-carbon electricity generating infrastructure, cleaned up thermal power generation, and enhanced energy efficiency, dramatically constraining China's rising carbon dioxide emissions, but also examines the substantial political and financial capital required to reinforce the predominantly administrative policy instruments and the mix of special interests and poor coordination that are endemic to the energy sector. Arguing that the current approach seems to be encountering ever diminishing returns, the book considers whether ongoing sector reforms and the new national emissions trading scheme can reinvigorate the nation's clean energy trajectory.

It started when a single red rose sent to the wrong person led to the right person. However, this is no ordinary romantic tale but a story of self-discovery, friendship and travel set to the backdrop of four continents. A chance encounter upon the volcanic and snowy slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro and a drunken text message sets off a chain reaction involving supermarket shopping in an odd pair of shoes and a trains emergency stop button. It charts a struggle to reconcile rigid moral values with genuine love for two women resulting in a broken promise and anxiety ridden reflections whilst travelling across America by train. A sprint finish to the Sun Gate while walking the Inca Trail is followed by dodging the attentions of a man eating Scottish lady along the West Highland Way. It reveals that when all the right ingredients are present, a deep and enduring love can overcome all challenges, even a very real and present second love.
