The Tyranny of Oil: The World's Most Powerful industry--and What We Must Do to Stop Itby Antonia Juhasz
Synopses & Reviews
Who's really driving oil and gas prices? How much oil is left? How far will Big Oil go to get it, and at what cost to the environment, human rights, the economy, worker safety, public health, and democracy?
Here, at last, are the answers we've been looking for—and the inside story on Big Oil.
In The Tyranny of Oil, Antonia Juhasz investigates the true state of the companies collectively known as "Big Oil," uncovering their unparalleled global financial power, their political dominance, and their increasingly destructive plans for the future. And she tells us what we can do about it.
A tool for meaningful change that blends history, original investigative research and reporting, candid interviews with key insiders, and a unique focus on activism, The Tyranny of Oil is required reading for every concerned global citizen.
A leading activist presents a report on the U.S. oil industry to argue that oil companies hold an unparalleled influence over the government, are not appropriately regulated, and are misrepresenting the truth about the causes of high gasoline prices. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.
