"Fascinating, revealing and at times downright disturbing, The Colder War will grip you from first page to last and leave you with a better understanding of the forces shaping the geopolitical landscape for decades to come."
Managing Editor, Things That Make You Go Hmmm...
"The Colder War provides a reversing contrast from the hysterical 'Putin is Stalin, Jr., restart the Cold War' message emanating from the neocon think tanks and the mainstream media. Marin Katusa provides an objective examination of Putin's history and goals, and shows the real threat to the American people is not Putin but the U.S. Government's hyper-interventionist foreign policy, our destructive monetary policies, and government policies that inhibit the development of America's energy resources."
--Dr. Ron Paul, Former U.S. Congressman, Founder Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity
"There are few more important questions to the future of Western economies than the fate of the petrodollar and direction of the energy trade. Marin Katusa's book tells the story of raging battles in the least covered and most misunderstood war of our time, a war that is already starting to redraw the world's map. Marin is an intense individual and has structured mining and energy deals the world over. This book offers a perspective from the trenches in the high stakes world of energy security."
--Ian Telfer, Chairman of Goldcorp and Director of Renaissance Oil Corp
"In this book, the difficult realities of The Colder War and the serious quest for energy security are set forth in a well written and thoughtful manner. The global race for security provided by civil nuclear energy is happening now and the western world may be in the process of losing. Marin Katusa's detailed account of the geopolitical race to control resources is an insightful page turner."
--Lady Barbara Judge, Chairman Emeritus, UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA)
"Marin has written a fascinating page-turning history of energy and Russia with a dash of humor and style. I read it in one sitting and suggest you do the same. You will get a much different view than what you read in the main stream media."
--John Mauldin, Chairman, Mauldin Economics
From the Author
When Doug Casey, the founder of Casey Research, broached the idea of writing about my theories of the Colder War, I was reluctant. I'm much more of an investment analyst than a writer, and I've never felt a yearning to see my work sitting on a bookshelf. But Doug persisted, and when I took up his idea of writing the book, he responded with advice that helped make it what its first reviewer termed "such a good read."

Marin does an excellent job of describing the major players in the global energy trade and how national policy in many countries is influenced by energy. The book is very readable and presents information clearly. My only complaint is that he doesn't cite his sources for specific claims- there is a list of sources in the back of the book but it would be better if they were linked directly to the claims that he's making (some of which are pretty major).
But the author is either pressed to conceal the real truth or he is just ignorant. If I had to vote? I would vote for the former (the guy is definitely smart).
However, the author's analysis (in spite of many charts and such) is severely lacking. His analysis is largely superficial and propaganda driven. Naturally so. Else, where would he get any in-depth knowledge of what's REALLY going on? So, like others, he drowns the reader in an ocean of hear-say (supported by 'convincing' graphs, of course), which he picked up in mainstream media and elsewhere ... mainstream.... It is convenient, after all.
Thinking is not convenient, for when one does some thinking, the revelations may be life-shattering, and no one wants to look beyond their comfort zone.
The author is very knowledgeable about energy, mining and their related fields. He gets right to the subject matter, doesn't waste your time with useless views or go on tangents on non-essential topics. He tells you how it is, how he sees it, and how to profit from wise investing in the field.
I would buy this book again (if I needed to).
