2nd (revised) edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Oil has shaped the politics of the twentieth century and has changed profoundly the way we lead our daily lives. The canvas for the story of oil is enormous — from the drilling of the first well in Pennsylvania, through two great world wars to the ‘accident’ that led to the discovery of North Sea oil, to Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait and Operation Desert Shield. Now, in The Prize, oil has become the subject of a book which does justice to the great struggle for wealth and power that has always surrounded the black gold. .
In the great tradition of epic storytelling, The Prize tells how and why oil has become the largest industry in the world, a game of huge risks and monumental rewards..”
