Oystein Tunsjo has scored an important coup with his book, Security and Profit in China's Energy Policy. His work clearly demonstrates the interaction of strategic and market elements in Beijing's thirsty search for energy reserves. He presents a very realistic analysis of China's strategic maritime and economic situation. This book is strongly recommended as a valuable resource for academics and for security policy makers -- Prof. Bernard D. Cole, National War College
