"This is not a Michael Moore-style anti-corporate rant-Shah writes
beautifully, with dispassionate, elegant clarity-and it is all the
more powerful for it." -The Guardian
"Sonia Shah deftly [shows] how the oil companies' relentless pursuit of new fields to exploit has led them to drill for oil in some of the most impoverished and unstable areas of the world ... particularly eloquent on the despoliation of the Delta region of southern Nigeria." -Michael Klare, The Nation
"Though Shah could have easily written a laundry list on the disruptions Big Oil and its government cohorts continue to wreak, this volume is more than that-it is an insightful missive to her readers to understand their consumptive reality." -Clamor Magazine
