Robert Powell, July 31, 2015 (view all comments by Robert Powell)
One of the best books I've ever read. Reads like a can't-put-it-down novel. Google "The Oil Shocks of the 70s" to see the "Chronology leading to the oil shock in 1973" and the inflation that was blamed on Carter; he got an incredibly bad rap.
