An excellent overview of the story of how the world discovered and became thoroughly dependent upon petroleum. Spans from the days of whaling ships searching the world's oceans for whale oil to supply lighting needs, to the American approach to developing the original oil fields of Pennsylvania, and up to the present day. Beyond the pervasive civilian transportation aspect, the work also emphasizes how access to oil is vital to military projection and intervention, domestic and international trade, and modern agriculture.
