"A first-rate, well-researched wake-up call." --The Christian Science Monitor"Outstanding...Exhaustively researched, beautifully written, and convincingly argued." --The Huffington Post"Stunning." --Rolling Stone"Reading this book, it's hard not to think about postapocalyptic fiction....Think Margaret Atwood, Cormac McCarthy, and, most recent, Suzanne Collins's Hunger Games. Yet novelists often skip over the messy parts along the road to dystopia. It's scary to think that Klare, far from crying wolf, might be providing the sordid details in real time." --Science News"If you think oil is the only major thing we're running short of, think again....Crisp, authoritative...A guidebook to wars to come." --Adam Hochschild, author of King Leopold's Ghost
