In The Tyranny of Oil, Antonia Juhasz exposes an industry that thrives on secrecy. She shows how Big Oil manages to hide its business dealings from policy makers, legislators, and most of all, consumers. Juhasz then provides a clear set of meaningful and achievable solutions, including the break-up of Big Oil.
