A complete and comprehensive history of Iraq’s oil and gas industry during the 20th century, this account discusses how the industry has been overshadowed and marginalized by turbulent and violent historical and political events—including numerous coups, revolutions, and the tragic and destructive wars—and gives overdue recognition to its professionals. Providing a balanced and level-headed understanding of the current, grave situation in the country, this account also underscores the difficult relationship between the Iraqi government and the Iraq Petroleum Company while shedding light on how history shaped the industry itself.
