A result of the spotlight that has fallen on Africa as a key source of oil and gas outside volatile West Asia, this volume assembles contributions from an international team of experts and eminent persons in African affairs to provide an analytically rich assessment of Africa’s role in the global search for oil, the multiple consequences of energy production across the African continent, and India’s multifarious approach to Africa. This well-researched analysis is enriched by Indian and African perspectives and anchored in detailed country case studies. Bridging local perspectives on energy resources and global framing of energy as a security concern, this exploration transcends state-centered views of energy security.
