PRAISE FOR THE ENERGY SECURITY DILEMMA A major contribution to the energy security literature. Bernell and Simon are rare boundary-spanners who have been operating at the intersection between the worlds of practice and the academe (Bernell), and between the worlds of science and engineering and social science policy studies (Simon) for over two decades. Energy security policy necessitates a broad range of knowledge and experience, and this book captures the insights generated from this truly collaborative work reflecting a remarkable scope of familiarity with the political, economic and scientific dynamics of energy security. -- Nicholas Lovrich, Washington State University, USA An articulate and novel take on energy security both as an analytical concept and as a lens through which to examine the complex dynamics and values affecting energy trends in the United States. Important reading for anybody seriously interested in the future of energy security in the United States, especially those striving to make America's energy system more environmentally friendly, renewable, and truly secure. -- Benjamin K. Sovacool, University of Sussex, UK Bernell and Simon have crafted an engaging and thoughtful examination of energy security that both captures the 20th-Century geopolitical roots of the topic and ties them to the emergent needs of the globalized 21st-century. It's a brave volume that isn't afraid to tackle incongruence and contradiction, with candor and insight, in one of the central political conflicts of our era. -- Adam L. Reed, University of Colorado-Boulder, USA
