The Tyranny of Oil
The World’s Most Powerful Industry, and What We Must Do to Stop It

A new book by
Antonia Juhasz
of the Institute for Policy Studies & Oil Change International

The hardest-hitting exposé of the oil industry in decades answers today’s most pressing energy questions:

  • Why are oil and gasoline prices rising so quickly?
  • Where will prices go in the future?
  • Who’s really controlling those prices?
  • How much oil is left?
  • How far will Big Oil go to get it?
  • And at what cost to the economy, environment, human rights, worker safety, public health, democracy, and America’s place in the world?
Juhasz investigates the true state of the U.S. oil industry, uncovering its virtually unparalleled global power, its influence over our elected officials, its lack of regulatory oversight, the truth behind $150-a-barrel oil, $4.50-a-gallon gasoline, and the highest profits in corporate history. Exposing an industry that thrives on secrecy, Juhasz shows how Big Oil manages to hide its business dealings from policy makers, legislators, and most of all, consumers. She reveals exactly how Big Oil gets what it wants—through money, influence, and lies.

A tool for meaningful change that blends history, original investigative research and reporting, interviews with key industry insiders, and a unique focus on activism, The Tyranny of Oil is required reading for every concerned global citizen.

A “timely, blistering critique... white-hot... Explosive fuel for the raging debate on oil prices.” - Kirkus Reviews
