Oil Revolution examines the anti-colonial diplomats, lawyers, and economists from the oil-producing nations in the Middle East and Latin America who forged a new economic culture of decolonization after World War II. Their efforts transformed the oil industry but had devastating consequences during the energy crises of the 1970s.
