The catastrophic oil spill within the Gulf of Mexico has introduced new awareness to the massive charges of our oil dependence. during this gorgeous and revealing e-book, Peter Maass examines the social, political, and environmental impression of petroleum at the international locations that produce it.

Every unsatisfied oil-producing country is gloomy in its personal manner, yet all are touched by means of the “resource curse”—the energy of oil to exacerbate latest difficulties and create new ones. Peter Maass offers a shiny portrait of the stricken international oil has created. From Saudi Arabia to Equatorial Guinea, from Venezuela to Iraq, the tales of rebels, royalty, middlemen, environmentalists, indigenous activists, and CEOs—all deftly and sensitively presented—come jointly during this startling and crucial account of the results of our habit to oil.
