In a section, the author has presented alternatives. The Azerbaijani gas is planned to be brought to Europe through the routes of Turkey. However, to pursue this scheme, the regional integration is much needed. If the regional states are fraternal, the following benefits could be amassed; "regional integration, promoted peace, diversified growth and improved political ties." (p.51)

Under this plan, the author upholds that the initiatives might be taken in improving the stability of Southern Caucasus and could easily be connected with the western block. "An economical sound and stable South Caucasus region will be a reliable partner for ensuring the security of Europe's eastern border and provide a lucrative market for both American and European businesses."(p.52) This perspective for alternative route is controversial because the whole region including the southern Caucasian region and Levant faces chaos. So, the stability is no more there in the region.

The author exactly proposes several dynamic developments to be made that can soothe the concerns of both sides. Accordingly, the tenets of EU energy policy have been observed as the relevant options and opportunities.

The work carried out through this book is precious part of the contemporary research. Therefore, the officials of diplomatic missions and academics could find it valuable for their respective professions. This is also excellent work for the students of the international relations and strategic studies. To give a final opinion, the book is praiseworthy addition in the politico-strategic literature, ever compiled by a think tank.
