Published in 1994, the History of the International Energy Agency: The First Twenty Years, the comprehensive story of the IEA’s decisions since its founding in 1974, has been an invaluable resource to the Agency’s Member country governments, to the IEA Secretariat, and to all those who are interested in international, inter-governmental organisations. The author was Richard Scott, a former IEA Legal Counsel. Now, his successor Craig S. Bamberger, has extended The History through most of the Agency’s third decade, up to the end of 2003. In this Supplement to Mr. Scott’s History, Mr. Bamberger has remained faithful to the structure of the original work, enabling the reader to move easily between time periods when researching a particular subject.

Continuity and change are both in evidence. The IEA’s basic institutional arrangements remain essentially as Mr. Scott described them in Volume I of The History, but the Supplement’s extensive treatment of budget and programme of work issues reflects significant changes in Agency practice, during a period when governments were engrossed in the management and financing of international organisations generally. In the policy realm, the Supplement recounts numerous new initiatives that the IEA has launched, while remaining true to its focus on the “three E” policy goals: Energy Security, Environmental Protection and Economic Growth.
