The Age of Oil: What They Don't Want You to Know About the World's Most Controversial Resource
L. Maugeri 2007 The Lyons Press Guilford
Oil is a vital resource and the oil industry is marked by booms and busts. This book examines the reasons behind these fluctuations and argues that the future of the oil business has never looked better - contrary to what many consumers are led to believe. "The Age of Oil" presents a controversial, yet surprisingly different perspective on the oil industry. It also attempts to debunk the main myths surrounding oil in our time as well as addresses whether we are indeed running out of oil, and examines the role of "black gold" in the world economy and today's geopolitical conflicts.
