Oilopoly: Putin, Power and the Rise of the New Russia Reviews
This is a good book on the complicated history of oil and Russia. The book covers the various dynamics and factors that led the former Soviet Union and now Russia to become an energy superpower. A major part of this book focuses on the geopolitics of Vladimir Putin's rise vis-à-vis oil and gas and also the role played by state champion Gazprom and its pipeline network that is used to funnel Russian and Central Asian gas throughout Eastern and Western Europe. All in all, a good read
Ok book but there was little to no new information or analysis. Perhaps it would be good as an introduction to the subject.
Fantastic, if you want to get to know the basic Russian Energy business then give this a read.
