Petrole: Crises, Marches Et Politiques
Petrole: Crises, Marches Et Politiques
By Pierre Jacquet and Françoise Nicolas
Dunod, 1991, 160 pp

Since oil is a raw material pas comme les autres, these French analysts look at its geography and politics as well as give a fairly detailed exposition of production, uses and markets (along with a 36-page statistical appendix). They examine the impact of the Persian Gulf crisis up to the war and also look forward to sketch several alternative possibilities for future arrangements between producers and consumers.
