Anticolonial Elites, Sovereign Rights, and the Economic Culture of Decolonization (Global and International History)
Christopher R. W. Dietrich
Oil Revolution delves into the complex world of anti-colonial oil elites during the age of decolonization. This community of elites spread across multiple countries and transformed the global oil industry through their work in United Nations, Arab League, and OPEC. Author Christopher R. W. Dietrich examines their ambitions and how access to oil played a key role in their success.
