International Energy Policy is a good collection of papers on the experience of different countries. Burton provides a wordy analysis of American problems and is pessimistic about getting governance under control. Arnold tells a readable, comprehensive story of British oil experience. In the last volume a number of original pieces of broad import are interspersed with quite technical papers.
