“If there is one man whose opinion matters more than any other on global energy markets, it’s Daniel Yergin.” — Time magazine
Pulitzer Prize winner and Marshall Scholar Daniel Yergin holds the unique position of being able to eloquently explain the ramifications that energy development has and will have on politics, economy, and the environment both domestically and internationally.

Yergin provides his audience with important insight to the future of energy, and listeners will come away with a profound understanding of the “big picture” when it comes to the development of new energy and its impact on the environment and governments worldwide.
The New Energy Future in the New World Economy?
How will the world change? Daniel Yergin draws on innovative, original scenarios to explore how great changes – in international politics, global economy, technology and the environment – will shape our future. What will it mean for world energy and political power if Asia overtakes North America to become the biggest part of the world economy? Could oil lose its monopoly position in fueling our cars? What would that mean for world politics? What happens if globalization falters, leading to a disappointing economic future, and a “global fissure”? Yergin dynamically addresses the trends that will shape the world and drive us into the future, outlines the conflicting choices and visions for the world economy and addresses what the great battle over globalization is all about. He also identifies key risks and opportunities, and describes the path to a better, safer world where the interests of competitive nations can come together—and the encouraging signposts along the way.
Oil, Power & Money: The Age of Energy Insecurity
The great struggles over oil and energy—particularly how they interact with geopolitics and the future of society—are of a growing concern to everyone. Indeed, anxiety about energy is practically a part of daily life, prompting numerous questions about our energy future: What are the risks of conflict over energy resources and “a new energy crises.” What will be the impact of high prices on the global economy—and on our own lives? Is the world really running out of oil? Will wind, ethanol and other renewable resources fill the gap? How will the energy needs of a growing world match up with rising concerns about carbon and climate change? Daniel Yergin is uniquely qualified to tackle these critical questions. He combines in-depth thought and analysis and up-to-the-minute insight with the clarity and personal energy of a great communicator.
Globalization and the New Geopolitics
Today’s era—“The Second Age of Globalization”—is proving much more challenging than was thought a few years ago. Balances of power have been constantly shifting, resulting in new alliances. The U.S., China and Russia are taking on new roles in this shifting geopolitical world, as the entire world now deals with the consequences of the war on terrorism. The technological forces shaping our future have led to critical debates about what it means to live in the "24-hour interconnected, hyperactive, e-mail-fueled, and sleep-deprived world." Meanwhile, a backlash continues to build against a world open to trade, investment, and communications, with energy as one of the most important forces changing the position of nations. Russia—flat on its back only a few years ago—is now an “energy superpower.” China and India are the rising great powers. And worries about energy security are now a political fact in the United States and Europe, amplified by climate change. Daniel Yergin takes on the question of overriding importance—how today’s positive global economic developments will interact with the negative and worrying geopolitical trends that are emerging out of the new geopolitics.
The Quest: Energy, Security, and the Remaking of the Modern World
This long-awaited successor to Daniel Yergin’s Pulitzer Prize-winning The Prize provides an essential, overarching narrative of global energy, the principal engine of geopolitical and economic change
Renowned energy authority Daniel Yergin continues the riveting story begun in his Pulitzer Prize winning book, The Prize, in this gripping account of the quest for the energy the world needs -- and the power and riches that come with it. A master story teller as well as one of the world′s great experts, Yergin proves that energy is truly the engine of global political and economic change, as well as central to the battle over climate change. From the jammed streets of Beijing, the shores of the Caspian Sea, and the conflicts in the Mideast, to Capitol Hill and Silicon Valley, Yergin takes us inside the decisions and choices that are shaping our future. Without understanding the realities of energy examined in The Quest, we may surrender our place at the helm of history.
One of our great narrative writers, Yergin tells the inside stories -- of the oil market, the rise of the "petrostate", the race to control the resources of the former Soviet empire, and the massive corporate mergers that transformed the oil landscape. He shows how the drama of oil—the struggle for access to it, the battle for control, the insecurity of supply, the consequences of its use, its impact on the global economy, and the geopolitics that dominate it—will continue to shape our world. He takes on the toughest questions -- will we run out of oil, and are China and the United States destined to conflict over oil?
Yergin also reveals the surprising and turbulent history of nuclear, coal, electricity, and natural gas. He investigates the "rebirth of renewables" -- -- biofuels and wind, as well as solar energy, which venture capitalists are betting will be "the next big thing" for meeting the needs of a growing world economy. He makes clear why understanding this greening landscape and its future role are crucial.
Yergin further brings climate change into unique perspective by offering an original and unprecedented history of how the issue went from concerning a handful of scientists, terrified of a new Ice Age, to one of the overarching issues of our times.
The Quest presents an extraordinary range of characters and a panorama of dramatic stories that illustrate the principles that will shape a robust and flexible energy security system for the decades to come. It is an extraordinary achievement from an author who is truly one of our nation′s great resources.
The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power
Deemed "the best history of oil ever written" by Business Week and with more than 300,000 copies in print, Daniel Yergin’s Pulitzer Prize–winning account of the global pursuit of oil, money, and power has been extensively updated to address the current energy crisis.
The Commanding Heights : The Battle for the World Economy
The Pulitzer Prize-wimming author of The Prize joins a leading expert on the global economy to present an incisive narrative of the risks and opportunities that are emerging as the balance of power shifts around the world between governments and markets -- and the battle over globalization comes front and center. The Commanding Heights is essential for understanding the struggle over the "new rules of the game" for the twenty-first century.
