Three books about oil interdependence that all point in the same direction: producer-consumer cooperation. The scholarly work of Professor Choucri of MIT traces many sets of interdependencies in detail, showing whose consent is needed for what. Mr. Windsor of the London School of Economics stresses fundamental political relations. The German authors put their emphasis on moving from partial cooperation (OPEC, recycling) to the larger work necessary to build a new international economic order.
