Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[Duncan] Clarke's rich yet readable prose offers astute insights as it pulls back the curtain to reveal the political and economic realities now facing Africa."—Barron’s Magazine

“If you read just one book on oil this year let it be by Duncan Clarke.”—Michael Holman, former Africa editor, Financial Times

"This is much more than just another book about oil. Clarke's experience and grasp of the history of African oil and its recent growth is captured in this astute study..."—Tony Hawkins, Financial Times

One of the world’s leading strategists on global oil exploration turns his critical eye to Africa’s oil prize to produce this definitive account of the issues and misunderstandings in Africa’s oil and gas game.

Duncan Clarke is a leading thinker, writer, and speaker on corporate strategy and geopolitical issues in the oil industry. Chairman and CEO of Global Pacific & Partners, he was previously an economist and advisor, with a focus on strategy, in the worldwide upstream industry.

Synopsis:

A definitive account of the issues and misunderstandings in Africa's oil and gas game.

Synopsis:

Based on thirty years in the global oil game, intimate knowledge of African history and direct experience of over forty countries, this comprehensive book shows that Africa's flaws are not the whole story, when it comes to the continent's history. A definitive yet original perspective on the rush for Africa's oil, this is also a guide to the hidden face of Africa.

Duncan Clarke begins by placing African oil issues in their historical context before tackling the issues of power, nationalism and different parties' strategies for control that have led to today's oil scene. This book is the ultimate reference work on oil in Africa - which is vital to everyone's future around the world.
