Over the past decade energy security has come to prominence within global politics. While European attention was focused on the fallout from the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States, energy security 'stole its way onto the international agenda' (p. 1). In this book Richard Youngs examines the foreign policy response to energy security from the European Union and its member states during the mid-2000s. Grounded in the theoretical literature on EU foreign policy, this book is well researched, involving in-depth analysis of a complicated policy area that is currently in a great deal of flux.
