Leif Wenar’s 2016 book Blood Oil: Tyrants, Violence, and the Rules that Run the World argues that much of the conflict, suffering, and injustice in the world is driven by an archaic rule in global trade that forces consumers to fund oppression and corruption. This oil curse is a major threat to global peace and stability. Wenar sets out Clean Trade policies to lift the oil curse through national legislation that affirms democratic principles.

In Beyond Blood Oil, Wenar summarizes and extends his views, setting the stage for five essays from first-class critics from the fields of political theory, philosophy, and energy politics. Wenar replies vigorously and frankly to the critics, making the volume the scene of a highly energetic debate that will benefit all scholars, students, and global citizens interested in global justice, international security, oil politics, fair trade, climate change, and progressive reforms.

Anmeldelser

«Beyond Blood Oil is a compelling book with new insights. Clean energy is both essential for healthy global ecology and crucial to an effective response to Blood Oil.»

Robert O. Keohane, Princeton University

«Leif Wenar and colleagues offer an ingenious proposal for making trade in natural resources morally acceptable. This volume is engaged public philosophy at its very best.»

Debra Satz, Stanford University

«Corruption in oil, gas, and mining is rampant across the globe. This ‘must read’ book goes to the core security imperatives for international action and provides vital pathways to progress.»

Frank Vogl, Transparency International, author "Waging War on Corruption"

«Leif Wenar’s Blood Oil  showed that we are complicit in the purchase of stolen goods, and that this complicity has disastrous consequences.  Now, in Beyond Blood Oil, he and his interlocutors take that debate further, probing its foundations as well as its broader ramifications. This is an important book on a crucial issue.»

Peter Singer, Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics, Princeton University and author of One World Now
