Description

Packed with fascinating facts and insight, this book will fuel dinner party debate, and provide readers with the science and politics behind the world's most controversial resource.

Without oil, there would be no globalization, no plastic, little transport, and a global political landscape that few would recognise. It is the lifeblood of the modern world, and humanity's dependence upon it looks set to continue for decades to come. In this captivating book, Vaclav Smil explains all matters related to 'black gold', from its discovery in the earth, right through to the political maelstrom that surrounds it today.
