Praise

“[E]xcellent microanalysis…Strong on documentation and factual evidence, this high-quality volume will surely serve historians and those interested in the oil industry.…Highly recommended.”
– Choice
“Any studying Middle East history or culture, particularly those at the college level, will find the weighty 560-page Mirage: Power, Politics, and the Hidden History of Arabian Oil to be a methodical and important survey of the discovery, development and use of Middle Eastern oil…An in-depth, essential pick for any collection solid in Middle Eastern studies and issues.”

– Midwest Book Review
“The book is extensively researched, and written so well…very readable and interesting.”

– Books-On-Line.com
“Well researched, well written, and eminently readable. I have known some of the personalities mentioned, and also experienced the oil industries in the localities with which this study is concerned, but until I read it, the truth had not been clear to me.”
