Description - Oil - A Beginner's Guide 2nd edition by Vaclav Smil

Oil is the lifeblood of the modern world. Without it, there would be no planes, no plastic, no exotic produce, and a global political landscape few would recognise. Humanity's dependence upon oil looks set to continue for decades to come, but what is it? Fully updated and packed with fascinating facts to fuel dinner party debate, Professor Vaclav Smil's Oil: A Beginner's Guide explains all matters related to the `black stuff', from its discovery in the earth right through to the controversy that surrounds it today.

Buy Oil - A Beginner's Guide 2nd edition by Vaclav Smil from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
