A.G. Lisitsyn-Svetlanov, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, LL.D., highly appreciated the textbook.
In his review of the textbook, A.G. Lisitsyn-Svetlanov states:
“For lawyers whose activities are related to energy law, the level of the top qualification, along with the acquisition of basic legal knowledge, implies the presence and practical application of the knowledge to develop energy law as an integrated legal discipline. The undeniable advantage of the textbook is the systematic presentation of the material, which is expressed in the successful combination of general theoretical and practical legal issues, as well as in the emphasis on the peculiarity of the regulation of relations in the energy sector: the intrinsic interaction of private and public law regulation, including the problems of energy security.
The textbook is not limited to the study of formal legal institutions only. The author vividly demonstrates the economic essence of the Russian energy sector as an industry combining internal and external economic principles. The revealed interrelation of internal and external markets corresponds to the use of the comparative legal method of research, which is discussed in the textbook. The proposed material is necessary not only in the educational process, but it will be of undoubted interest to practical specialists.”
