Product Details


Wanda Jablonski was one of a kind—a reporter who revealed the secret world of the oil business, a woman who penetrated the inner sanctums of the Arab oil sheiks, and an entrepreneur who created a publication that was the industry’s bible. Jablonski’s colorful career comes alive in Anna Rubino’s richly reported biography.—David Ignatius, columnist for the Washington Post and author of Body of Lies: A Novel

“A page-turner and a substantive biography, Queen of the Oil Club makes Middle East oil history come alive through the eyes of a truly trailblazing woman journalist.”—Ambassador Connie Morella, former Maryland congresswoman

“Part detective story and part political thriller, Queen of the Oil Club is the true account of the most influential woman of the early oil age. It’s a book you can’t miss.”—Gregg Easterbrook, author of The Progress Paradox

“What a fascinating story and what a remarkable woman! Before women were even allowed to join the National Press Club, Wanda Jablonski managed, through determination, hard work, and excellent reporting, to overcome the odds and become one of the most influential journalists in our history. Jablonski not only chronicled the growth of the oil industry, she helped shape it—and brought oil barons to their knees.” —Bill Press, political commentator, author, and radio host of The Bill Press Show

“A gem of a book about a remarkable woman and the shadowy world of oil and global politics. Anna Rubino has followed in Wanda Jablonski’s footsteps, mining the data and presenting a fascinating story.”—Rachel Bronson, author of Thicker than Oil: America’s Uneasy Partnership with Saudi Arabia
