About this book

This work is an overview of the critical natural resource conflicts facing the United States and the world, and current attempts to resolve them peacefully.

By the year 2015, three billion people - 40 percent of the world's population - will find it difficult or impossible to find enough water to meet their domestic, crop, and industrial needs. Other critical natural resources, too, will soon be in dangerously short supply. Are we entering an age of natural resource wars? Conflicts over natural resources are not new. But they are now worldwide, enduring, increasingly contentious, and in some cases, intractable.

In this new book, political scientist Jacqueline Vaughn explores conflicts over natural resources - both renewable and nonrenewable - in the United States and from a worldwide perspective. "Conflicts over Natural Resources" focuses on four major controversies: minerals, oil, and natural gas drilling; protected areas policy; range land management; and timber and forests. On the global level, the work also explores issues surrounding diamonds and precious metals, forest destruction, and water scarcity.
