‘An inspired anthology of classic and contemporary reading concerning geopolitics and the the commons, this book provides essential background for students and practitioners of natural resources governance.’
– Helen Ingram, University of California, Irvine, US

This significant collection examines the diverse ways natural resources are managed and controlled and the controversies that arise regarding their use, allocation, and protection resulting from governance decisions and policies. Professor Feldman has selected seminal works which focus on several key issues, including the role of common property resources in questions of trans-boundary resource management, the diverse ways societies and interest groups accord value to resources and their use, and how resources are catalysts for both international conflict and cooperation. This authoritative volume will be of immense value to students, professionals and practitioners interested in the field of geopolitics and natural resources.
