POWERFUL. EVOCATIVE. TAUT. Edwin Black s powerful new study --is solid and evocative throughout. For those interested in business history, his study of the relationship between commercial and political interests, especially the company that eventually became British Petroleum, is well worth the price of admission. There s also ample material to draw from to consider the future path of Iraq ... Black is committed, if not obsessed, with hyper-intensive research and documentation. His books are copiously footnoted and referenced. Given the seriousness and scope of the subjects, this is an absolute necessity. --Richard Pachter, Miami Herald
FASCINATING HISTORY. What a fascinating history ... Black tries to show that the reason so much attention has been paid to Iraq, especially in the modern era, is its oil. He does so fairly convincingly. --Adam Daifallah, Montreal Gazette

As a student at university I wrote a brief research paper on the Sykes Picot agreement. At the time it seemed to me to be the driving force for the way countries were created in the region, but after reading this book I realize it was more of a sideshow to the real action, which was a combination of national and business interests around organized exploiting the oil resources of the region.
One again, this is a very important book and I am thankful to the author for writing it! It will serve as a foundational work for those seeking to understand why the region is the way it is today.
