About the book:

A fascinating account of the world oil industry - and more this book has now become the standard quide to the diversity of geographical, political and economic industry. The oil industry is the world's largest commercial enterprise. Its extent is global, affecting every country. International issues, from Iran to Sino-soviet relations, are influenced by considerations of oil production and consumption, while the international communications networks of the larger oil companies rival those of the majority of nations. In 1950 the world's crude oil production was only 500 million tons. By 1980 it was over 3,000 million, and it could be 5,000 million by the early twenty-first century - or the industry could continue to decline. Professor Odell explains the complexities of this gigantic empire and its influence on us all. There are chapters on the USA, the Soviet Union, the oil-exporting countries and OPEC, Western Europe, Japan and the oil-consuming countries of the developing world.
