The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power

The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power

7,500.00

The Prize is a definitive work on the subject of oil and a major contribution to understanding our century. A book of extraordinary breadth, riveting excitement — and great importance.

Description

The struggle for wealth and power that has surrounded oil for decades continues to shake the world economy, dictate the outcome of wars, and transform the destiny of men and nations. The Prize is as much a history of the twentieth century as of the oil industry itself. The canvas of this history is enormous — from the drilling of the first well in Pennsylvania through two great world wars to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and Operation Desert Storm. The cast extends from wildcatters and rogues to oil tycoons, and from Winston Churchill and Ibn Saud to George Bush and Saddam Hussein.
