Africa: Crude Continent (Ebook)
The Struggle for Africa's Oil Prize
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.
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 account of 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.
