Written by the author of "Shattered Peace" and "Energy Future", this book tells the history of oil and the struggle for wealth and power that always surrounds it. As much a history of the modern world as of the oil industry, the book reveals oil's critical role in world events, from Japan's attack on Pearl Harbour to the Suez Crisis, from Yom Kippur to the Gulf War. The book includes the story of Shell Oil, a company forged in defiance of the Standard Oil monopoly by an upstart London trader, using Rothchild connections, Russian oil and Dutch petrolium concession in the East Indies, and the inside story of the discovery of North Sea Oil and its crucial role in undermining the OPEC monopoly. The book is a TV tie-in edition with the major eight-part BBC TV series.

We based our evaluation of book condition on the following criteria:

New: Just like it sounds. A brand-new, unused, unread copy in perfect condition.

Like New: An apparently unread copy in perfect condition. Dust cover is intact; pages are clean and are not marred by notes or folds of any kind.

 * Very Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in excellent condition. Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting, but may contain a neat previous owner name. The spine remains undamaged.

 * Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. The spine may show signs of wear. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include "From the library of" labels or previous owner inscriptions.

 * Acceptable: A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact (the dust cover may be missing). Pages can include considerable notes--in pen or highlighter--but the notes cannot obscure the text.
