An excellent summary of the combination of critical factors which are involved in this subject-energy scarcity and Western oil dependence, the development of nuclear power, future Soviet energy needs, political instability in the Persian Gulf, contingencies for the use of military force, and related issues among the Atlantic Alliance nations and with Japan. The author's close familiarity with both military and resource problems allows him to interrelate them exceptionally well.
