    This book by Dilip Hiro, though now definitely dated, is a phenomenal exposition not only of the history of oil as a commodity, but also hydrocarbonsgenerally, along with the accompanying geopolitics in all their convoluted minutiae This work manages to explain how Middle Eastern geopolitics have been shaped by oil, how OPEC s creation shaped the 20th century and empowered previously helpless nations, and how the United States has constantly been at the forefront in undermining any accord This book by Dilip Hiro, though now definitely dated, is a phenomenal exposition not only of the history of oil as a commodity, but also hydrocarbonsgenerally, along with the accompanying geopolitics in all their convoluted minutiae This work manages to explain how Middle Eastern geopolitics have been shaped by oil, how OPEC s creation shaped the 20th century and empowered previously helpless nations, and how the United States has constantly been at the forefront in undermining any accords our alliances outside of its sphere of influence, with European help along the way the mention of the Pentagon s plan to destroy OPEC with Iraq s reserves is a very helpful fact, which makes sense of much of the entire operation This book is also gripping, as the author explains every single event with precision but without excess, and uses an adroit journalistic voice in setting the context of every chapter Lastly, the discussions on renewable energy sources is still a very useful guide, especially to understand why they have not been pursued as often or widely as one would wish for.Anyone who wants to understand oil, 20th century geopolitics, the Iraq war, Iran, Russia s increasing power, India and China s needs as emerging nations, should read this book

    This book reads a bit like a textbook, but it was a good overview of the history of oil exploration and use and the geopolitics of oil In telling this story, Hiro reminds us of the omnipresent and overwhelming importance of oil and gas in our modern society particularly in the US and Europe, and now increasingly in China and of the need to wean ourselves off of it both for the health of our planet and the sustainability of our society.

    A lotinteresting than I was expecting Dilip starts with a history lesson on the beginnings of oil, and moves in to how oil has been vital to political history, particularly since WWI I found this section the most fascinating, because it looked at world events from a perspective that was completely new to me As the time line approaches the new millennium, the energy crisis and alternative energy sources are discussed It s a pretty depressing 150 pages Definitely read it before the ed A lotinteresting than I was expecting Dilip starts with a history lesson on the beginnings of oil, and moves in to how oil has been vital to political history, particularly since WWI I found this section the most fascinating, because it looked at world events from a perspective that was completely new to me As the time line approaches the new millennium, the energy crisis and alternative energy sources are discussed It s a pretty depressing 150 pages Definitely read it before the edition becomes too outdated published 2007 , or maybe a revised edition will be released in the future P.S One odd thing Hiro gets way into describing facial features of people as he introduces them Kinda weird

    This is fine journalism, kind of like a long, unpolished piece from the Christian Science Monitor At times, one does hope for a littleflair, but Hiro does manage to give a competent run down on the geo political history of oil and the massive shitstorm we face on the horizon.
