This introduction starts with a note on the general relationship between natural resources, their scarcity, conflicts, cooperation, and environmental problems, along with how these issues motivate international relations, interstate wars, and political disputes. It also focuses on how asymmetries across countries affect negotiation and cooperation. Important scholars and their works are acknowledged throughout the introduction, with specific illustrations, and various imperative factors concerning the “resource wars” are paraphrased. The introduction ends with a brief discussion of the key contents of the subsequent chapters and asymmetries, which are related cases that have played a major role in natural resource scarcity.

Keywords:   natural resources, interstate wars, scarcity, resource wars, environmental problems, conflicts, international relations
