Product description

Review

"A thoughtful and well-researched history of oil and geopolitics . . . Mr. Klare provides a service when he puts America's close ties with Saudi Arabia in a historical context."-"The Economist""A steady poli-sci elaboration of U.S. foreign policy of the past 60 years as viewed through the lens of oil . . . ["Blood and Oil"] is elaborately sourced [and] dismayingly convincing."-Lisa Margonelli, "San Francisco Chronicle" "Michael Klare's "Blood and Oil" is the best book among the recent outpouring of studies on oil and world affairs. I am using it in three classes this semester. Indeed, it is a model of how to research and write contemporary history. Carefully researched, convincingly argued, and clearly written, it shows how oil's role in American society and politics influences U.S. relations with the rest of the world. "Blood and Oil" is essential reading for anyone concerned about the sources and dynamics of U.S. foreign policy."-David Painter, Walsh Sch --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
