The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power

Synopsis : The best-seller book ‘The Prize‘ recounts the panoramic history of oil — and the struggle for wealth and power that has always surrounded oil.

The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power

This struggle has shaken the world economy, dictated the outcome of wars, and transformed the destiny of men and nations.

Deemed “the best history of oil ever written” by Business Week and with more than 300,000 copies in print, Daniel Yergin’s Pulitzer Prize-winning account of the global pursuit of oil, money, and power has been extensively updated to address the current energy crisis. 

The Prize is as much a history of the twentieth century as of the oil industry itself. The canvas of history is enormous — from the drilling of the first well in Pennsylvania through two great world wars to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and Operation Desert Storm.
