This important reference collection includes the seminal literature on the political economy of natural resources - broadly defined as not only minerals but also energy sources and agriculture. It includes key articles and papers on the politics of international markets in these resources, the effects of these markets on the world economy and on the domestic political economy as well as the domestic politics of policymaking on international resources.
