The effort to sustain economic growth has seen many countries keenly demand and seek energy. This is especially so in East Asia, where energy demand is growing because of rapid urban growth. Energy security, therefore, is of critical concern for the governments of those countries to ensure their cities secure sufficient energy supplies. Energy supplies are secured transnationally, and behind this process the full extent of the environmental politics involved is seldom revealed. InĀ Energy, Governance and Security in Thailand and Myanmar (Burma), Simpson delivers a timely, thought-provoking book based on extensive fieldwork that provides crucial insights into the transnational complexities of energy governance and security, highlighting the voices of affected local communities and environmental activists in case studies.
