This book presents a critical analysis of how oil and gas exploitation - with huge negative impacts on environment, development, and human security - has constructed a disturbing terrain of civil agitation, state repression, violent conflicts, and insecurity within Nigeria. Drawing on the nature and content of public policy and corporate social responsibility practices, the book interrogates the conflicts' communal and regional dimensions in terms of causality, dynamics, and interventions. In presenting strategies and mechanisms for resolving the diverse dimensions of the resource conflicts, it charts the way towards sustainable development and conflict transformation - two issues which would remain germane to the resource conflict resolution discourse in the specific case of the Niger Delta and beyond.

An exploration of the social and environmental consequences of oil extraction in the tropical rainforest. Using northern Veracruz as a case study, the author argues that oil production generated major historical and environmental transformations in land tenure systems and uses, and social organisation. Such changes, furthermore, entailed effects, including the marginalisation of indigenes, environmental destruction, and tense labour relations. In the context of the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920), however, the results of oil development did not go unchallenged. Mexican oil workers responded to their experience by forging a politicised culture and a radical left militancy that turned 'oil country' into one of the most significant sites of class conflict in revolutionary Mexico. Ultimately, the book argues, Mexican oil workers deserve their share of credit for the 1938 decree nationalising the foreign oil industry - heretofore reserved for President Lazaro Cardenas - and thus changing the course of Mexican history.

"Oil provides huge economic benefits to oil companies and oil-producing countries; however, oil production can have multiple adverse effects on the environment which in turn can affect people's lives. This problem appears to be most severe in oil-producing developing countries. In Nigeria, oil production has resulted in serious environmental damage and violent conflicts (which I refer to as "environmental insecurity"). Why? In this research, I investigated the causal link between oil production and environmental insecurity in the Niger Delta using Thomas Homer-Dixon's well-known environmental security model. Data for use with the model derives from textual material and interviews. My findings and synthesis of results from the literature show that adverse environmental impacts, together with regulatory failure by the Nigerian government and exploitative practices by oil companies, led to a decrease in the supply of natural resources in the region (land, crops, forests, freshwater, fishing waters and fish), which in turn led to constrained economic productivity that, in some instances, precipitated violent conflict in the Niger Delta. Corruption and lack of enforcement were predominant factors explaining the failure of intervention measures designed to prevent violent conflict."--Leaf ii.

Tar Wars offers a critical inside look at how leading image-makers negotiate escalating tensions between continuous economic growth mandated by a globalized economic system and its unsustainable environmental costs. As place branding assumes paramount importance in an increasingly global, visual, and ecologically conscious society, an international battle unfolds over Alberta’s bituminous sands. This battle pits independent documentary filmmakers against professional communicators employed by government and the oil industry. Tar Wars engages scholars and students in communications, film, environmental studies, social psychology, PR, media and cultural studies, and petrocultures. This book also speaks to decision makers, activists, and citizens exploring intersections of energy, environment, culture, politics, economy, media and power.

Despite the recent proliferation of environmental literature, publications on environmental control of petroleum activities are still very rare. This book fills this gap by providing the first major volume focused specifically on environmental regulation of oil and gas. This book contains exclusive in-depth articles written by well-known scholars, international lawyers, and practitioners from around the world. The book deals with the environmental aspect of the hydrocarbon cycle in general and oil and gas exploration and production in particular. Its main thrust is management of environmental legal risks and issues in upstream operations. Part of the objective of this book is to introduce the best practices and legal tools of environmental management of petroleum exploration and production to the international oil community and other parties interested in the subject.
