An exhaustive and generally balanced account of why the US and other industrial powers became dangerously dependent on foreign oil. A college professor who served thirteen years as chief economist of the Senate Subcommittee on Antitrust and Monopoly, Blair chronicles how seven major international petroleum producers--integrated from well to gas pump--began operating in restraint of trade with the usually eager complicity of Mideast rulers around the turn of the century "to avoid the rigors of price rivalry." Even as control of concessions passes to host nations through nationalization or pre-emptive participation agreements, he maintains, Big Oil retains its hold. Although crude quotas have quadrupled since 1973, OPEC still dances to the majors' tune in fear that oversupply could break prices in the West's volume markets. Having documented both the causes and consequences of monopolistic control of oil resources, Blair suggests several remedies, chiefly utility-style federal regulation of large crude suppliers and vigorous enforcement of antitrust statutes. The book touches on petroleum alternatives as well as supplements (synthetics, electric cars, fuel cells). While Blair's style must be characterized as academic-graceless, he provides damning detail for the upcoming debate on the extent to which oil-industry concentration represents an abuse of economic power overdue for redress. His work is as important and valuable as it is disturbing.

The Frackers by Gregory Zuckerman, bestselling author of The Greatest Trade Ever, tells the untold story of the tycoons behind the US fracking controversy. Things looked grim for American energy in 2006. Oil production was in steep decline and natural gas was hard to find. The Iraq War threatened the nation's already tenuous relations with the Middle East. China was rapidly industrializing and competing for resources. Major oil companies had just about given up on new discoveries on US soil, and a new energy crisis loomed. But a handful of men believed everything was about to change. By experimenting with hydraulic fracturing through extremely dense shale - a process now known as fracking - these 'wildcatters' started a revolution. In just a few years, they solved America's dependence on imported energy, triggered a global environmental controversy - and made and lost astonishing fortunes. The frackers have already transformed the eco¬nomic, environmental, and geopolitical course of history, and like the Rockefellers and the Gettys before them, they're using their wealth and power to influence politics, education, entertainment, sports, and many other fields. Activists argue that the same methods that are creating so much new energy are also harming our water supply and threatening environmental chaos. Award-winning reporter Gregory Zuckerman gained exclusive access to the frackers, chronicling the untold story of how they transformed the nation and the world. The result is a dramatic narrative that stretches from the barren fields of North Dakota to the tense Wall Street boardrooms. The Frackers also tells the story of the angry opposition unleashed by this revolution, and explores just how dangerous fracking really is. Gregory Zuckerman is a special writer at The Wall Street Journal and the bestselling author of The Greatest Trade Ever. He is a two-time winner of the Gerald Loeb Award and a winner of the New York Press Club Journalism Award.
