Written by Linda McQuaig. Published by Anchor Canada, 2006.


National bestseller It's the Crude, Dude is back — with a slick new title and updated material.

In War, Big Oil, and the Fight for the Planet, author Linda McQuaig focuses on a truly planetary issue: the cataclysmic effects our addiction to oil is having on our environment and our ability to co-exist in the world. McQuaig's research, analysis, and eye for detail combine to produce a riveting tale about the battle over oil that shapes our times and will determine our future. Readers of all political stripes will find this book provocative, timely, and impossible to put down.

With the drama of a thriller, McQuaig probes the mystery of what really lay behind the U.S. invasion of Iraq. She points to Washington's desire to gain control of the most spectacular untapped oil bonanza left on Earth — even as rapidly dwindling worldwide oil reserves threaten to turn competition for crude into the major international battleground of the future. With China's recent emergence as a voracious consumer, there soon won’t be enough oil left to fuel two superpowers. Against this backdrop, and the equally urgent problem of global warming, War, Big Oil, and the Fight for the Planet reminds us of the enormous consequences of our failure to curb our addiction to oil.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
