The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money and Power

by Daniel Yergin

  • HISTORY
  • 2008
  • PAPER
  • 908 PAGES

Thoroughly researched and monumental in scope (it weighs almost three pounds), this Pulitzer Prize-winning history examines the story of petroleum and the West's dependence on the oil-rich Middle East. A master storyteller, Yergin conjures a large and fascinating cast of tycoons, sheiks and politicians. With in-depth analysis of the Persian Gulf war.  (ARB36, $22.00)
