1 Introduction The topic of energy did not feature among the former Millennium Development Goals ( mdg s), yet it now has a central place in the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals ( sdg s). 1 This represents an important step forward in abandoning the false myth that only fossil

The Greater Middle East in Global Politics

Social Science Perspectives on the Changing Geography of the World Politics

Series:

Mehdi Amineh

This anthology unites in one volume two studies of the Greater Middle East in global politics – each conceptual and empirical. First, it is a historical-comparative study of politics and societies in selected Greater Middle Eastern countries from Napoleon’s invasion of Ottoman Egypt in 1798 up until today. It addresses development and change in these societies as results of the complex interactions between external developments, the rise and expansion of European industrialized powers, and internal developments, the disintegration of Islamic Empires, their transformation into nation-states, and their efforts to industrialize and modernize. Second, it is an empirical case study of states and societies of the Greater Middle East in global politics, addressing themes such as nationalism, revolution, political Islam, democracy, globalization, regionalism, revolution, war, energy, and conflict and cooperation. The book is comprised of three parts and nineteen chapters. Contributors include: Mehdi Parvizi Amineh, Simon Bromley, Robert M. Cutler, Louisa Dris-Aït-Hamadouche, S.N. Eisenstadt, Femke Hoogeveen, Henk Houweling, B.M. Jain, Mehran Kamrava, Roger Kangas, Fred H. Lawson, Prithvi Ram Mudiam, Nilgun Onder, Wilbur Perlot, Richard Pomfret, Kurt W. Radtke, Mirzohid Rahimov, Eva Patricia Rakel, and Yahia H. Zoubir.

our growing energy needs through offshore oil and gas development. But the oceans also hold a unique potential as a renewable source of energy. That potential is so vast that our dependence on fossil fuels could be drastically reduced, or even eliminated altogether. 1 The possibility of exploiting

[German Version] Nuclear technology uses the energy from nuclear reactions for peaceful or military purposes. It is released when heavy nuclei (e.g. Uranium 235, Plutonium 239) are split (fission energy) or light atoms (Nuclear physics) are fused (e.g. production of helium from hydrogen: fusion

Ocean energy resources—not only petroleum and natural gas, but the untapped, infinite, renewable, and non-polluting energy resources of the sea itself; the energy of tides and waves and currents, of thermal or salinity gradients, or of the huge and incredibly fast-growing biomass (kelp) of the sea

1 Introduction Wind energy is one of the world’s fastest growing forms of energy, and its potential is vast. 1 The world’s current generating capacity of wind energy is growing at 20 to 30 per cent per year. 2 The International Energy Agency has suggested that, by 2050, wind
