Crude Interventions: The United States, Oil and the New by Garry Leech

By Garry Leech

First and foremost of the twenty first century, a brand new global ailment is rising within which battles over assets are enjoying an more and more well known function. the significance of oil to this photograph is underscored by means of the unilateral and militaristic international coverage of the world's greatest energy in its try and safe entry to this serious source. during this international context, oil-rich groups of the South are being drawn into struggles to shield their sovereignty, cultural integrity, human rights and threatened ecosystems.

Crude Interventions examines the army and monetary regulations of the Bush management in oil-rich areas of the area. extra accurately, it examines the socio-economic and human rights outcomes of those rules, in addition to these of contemporary US administrations and multinational strength businesses, for the peoples of oil generating countries within the international South. With basically 4 percentage of the world's inhabitants, the us consumes 25 consistent with cent of world power construction. This thirst for strength has performed an important function in deciding on US overseas coverage in contemporary many years. the need to safe entry to trustworthy provides of oil has performed a fair extra fashionable position in picking the overseas coverage of the govt of George W. Bush than prior administrations.

By targeting the USA function in Iraq, relevant Asia, West Africa, Colombia and Venezuela, Crude Interventions makes obvious the connections among US strength pursuits, the battle on terror, globalization, human rights abuses and different social injustices persisted via these peoples of the South cursed with an abundance of the world's so much wanted source.
