Product description


BOOK OF THE WEEK: The Oil Road opens the lid on the often-shady energy economy, weaving absorbing travel reportage into powerful investigative journalism. ... If you want to know why oil matters read this book. --Time Out

Exploring the political, social and environmental impact of the pipeline as they travel its 1,100-mile length and beyond, James Marriott and Mika Minio-Paluello spin an unexpectedly engaging tale. … A distinctive blend of travelogue, reportage and history…. But the book is more a series of reflections than a polemic or manifesto. Rather than John Pilger or Naomi Klein, the presiding spirit is that of Iain Sinclair. --Financial Times
