Format: Paperback
F. William Engdahl's 2011 edition of 'A Century of War' is one of the must-read books of our time. If one is to consider one's self well informed it is important to understand the historical events and players involved in the past century's struggle over oil and power. Engdahl makes it all clear and comprehensible. He is a fine storyteller. I was especially impressed with his analysis of Germany's Berlin to Bagdad railroad project, how it aroused the British, threatening to tip the balance of power between Germany and Britain prior to the outbreak of war in 1914.

Read Engdahl's books, starting with this one, as soon as possible.

William Engdahl gives a historical description of two periods of important developments in Anglo-American Oil Politics,in the twentieth century.
These two periods are, in the timeframe of this century, completely seperated from each other, both in their general conception and in the light of fundamental changes in world events.
The first period describes the beginning of the Anglo-American oil politics until the year 1939.
The second period is a description of the new World Society under a strong Anglo-American umbrella: "the New World Order": the years after 1945.
Missing are the years between 1939 and 1945.
I wonder why the history is not described of the Anglo-American Oil Politics during these years. Particularly in the Far East with the participation of the U.S.A , events led to the second World War.
In my opinion an additional chapter about the role of oil in relation to Anglo-Amercan War Politics in the Far East, might be added by Mr. Engdahl.

Some historical facts:
War in Western Europe and the Japanese expansion in the Far East, during the years of the second World War.
The Oil Policy of the Dutch Government, in line with the Anglo-American Oil Policy, especially in the Far East have also lead to consequences.
During Adolf Hitler's "blitz" through the (neutral) Low Countries, May 1940, the Dutch Government and the Head of State in the Netherlands, at that time Queen Regnant Wilhelmina, left for England with the other members of the Royal family. A few days later, the Nazi occupation of The Netherlands took place.
The Dutch Government continued its activities as a " Government in Exile" in an office in London and from then on as an ally of Great Britain.

The book presents in a documented and well-referenced manner the steategy and history of world dominance by global oil firms.
I recommend that every long term investor reads it to understand tge impact of this dominance strategy on his investment plans.
I also recommend reading the other 4 books by Dr. Engdahl to understand the other lobbies trying to dominate tge world.

This is a book focusing on what the author calls "Anglo-American Oil Politics". The narrative describes facts and sometimes includes the author's views about them. The time period covered starts in the middle of the 19th century and ends in the middle of the first decade of the 21st century. If you want to know more about the backstage of Oil Politics this clearly written book is a must read.

Engdahl's presentation of the machinations of the oil industry and of the foreign policy practioners of UK and US is terrific, His narrative of how the various countries and fiefdoms became who and what they are is terrific in understanding the conditions in the Middle East today. My major disagreement is his advocacy of nuclear power as a solution to overdependence on oil. also, the suggestion that alternative energies are a distraction provided by the oil cartel to insure their continued power is dubious, in my opinion. But these assumptions aside, his history and analysis of the relationship between oil and power is a terrific primer for all who seek to make sense of the world today.

This book is well worth the effort to read. Be aware that it will likely make you angry as you get a more clear picture of the fact that politics that we see in the mass media is just a puppet show to distract the population from understanding the oligarchy of banks, big oil and multinational corporations that really run everything for their own profit and power.
