The Complete Idiot's GuideR to the Politics of Oil delves deeply into how American foreign policy (particularly in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East) is dictated, and how the future of the world will be affected by oil policy. This book traces the evolution of the growth of the oil industry, how advancing technologies created a need for the precious fluid, how the invention of the automobile and the birth of large companies came as a result; how Venezuela, Russia, and other non-Middle Eastern countries affect the world's oil supply, and how the discovery of oil in the Arabian Peninsula more than half a century ago (followed by the creation of OPEC) altered the destiny of Saudi Arabia, the U.S., and the rest of the world. Authors C.D. Jaco and Julianne Niemann will be consulting with a number of experts in the fields of politics, economics, and science for the most cutting edge and up-to-date information available on the subject of oil and politics.
