5.0 out of 5 stars Strong stuff !!!!!, 24 Jan 2007
This review is from: The Next Gulf: London, Washington and Oil Conflict in Nigeria (Paperback)
This book unravels the murky world of Nigerian oil, tracing an interesting trajectory from the first well at Oloibiri, through the rise of Nigeria's petro foreign policy, indigenisation, the rising US interest in the Gulf of Guinea and it's gradual militarisation,the ecological disaster in the Niger Delta, deeply embedded international corruption and of course the tragic death of Ken Saro Wiwa. It is short , gripping and full of good facts. Most interesting is the analogy drawn between the oil trade and the atlantic slave trade. Overall I found the Next Gulf a well written, well researched and very concerned book. It sounds the alarm bells for a region that may go the way of it's neighbours in Sierra Leone and Liberia.
