Black Gold : Britain and Oil in the Twentieth Century Hardback
by Charles More
This book presents a history of oil and its central role in politics and societies worldwide.
This book tells the story of the raw material which shaped the twentieth century - and with it the destiny and development of modern Britain.
From the first explorations, through oil-fuelled conflicts and the crises of the 1970s that convulsed the petroleum-guzzling nations of the developed world, this book examines the political, strategic, economic and social importance of oil.
