An incisive analysis of the risks and opportunities emerging as the balance of power shifts around the world between governments and markets, Yergin brings the battle over globalization front and center. Dissecting the dominant enterprises and industries that form the high economic ground in nations around the globe, Yergin examines the individuals, ideas, conflicts, and turning points that are responsible in the new world economy. Considering such events as the Asian and European monetary crises, Yergin offers a vision of what the ultimate interconnection of financial markets might mean in the future. This presentation is essential for understanding the struggle over the “new rules of the game” for the twenty-first century.

The great struggles over oil and energy particularly how they interact with geopolitics and the future of society are of growing concern throughout the globe. Indeed, anxiety about energy is foremost on the minds of governments, businesses and individuals, as it is part and parcel of daily life for all. Consequently, concerns are quickly rising about the future of energy: What are the risks of conflict over energy resources and a new energy crisis? What will be the impact of high prices on the global economy and on our own lives? How will the energy needs of a growing world match up with rising concerns about carbon and climate change? Yergin tackles these critical issues with in-depth thought, analysis and perspective, delivered with lucidity, clarity and wit.

In this eye-opening, enlightening discussion, Yergin presents a gripping account of the quest for the energy that our modern world needs. A master storyteller as well as a leading energy expert, Yergin demonstrates how energy is an engine of global political and economic change. The Quest is a riveting presentation that spans the energies on which our society has been built and the new resources that are competing to replace them.
