Blogs Win Prizes


I’m rather pleased to receive in the post today my prize copy of the book “Empires of Oil” and the promise of another tome, “Crude Continent – The Struggle for Africa’s Oil Prize“, when it is published in September. This was from the competition in the Petroleum supplement of The Times two weeks ago, which I encouraged Blog readers to enter too. I wonder how many of us were winners.

Both books are by Dr Duncan Clarke, and the one coming out in September “provides new interpretations on the oil game, the internal struggles over oil resources, the role of Great Powers, and the long and continuing corporate oil quest by over 500 players now active in and on Africa,” according to publishers Profile Books.
