The Curse of oil( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This program offers a global history of the oil industry and the issues intertwined with it, from early 20th century prospecting in South America and the Middle East to war in Iraq. The origins and significance of OPEC figure prominently in the narrative, as do several historic and violent conflicts revolving around controlling sources or flows of oil: labor strikes in Latin America, Nasser's seizure of the Suez Canal, the Iran-Iraq war, and other pivotal events. Revealing interviews feature, among others, former OPEC leader Sheikh Ahmed Yamani and former U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia James Akins--who minces no words and calls oil a curse."--Films Media Group website
