The Russian oil industry which vies with Saudi Arabia as the worlds largest producer and exporter of oil, providing nearly 12 percent of the global supply - is facing mounting problems that could send shock waves through the Russian economy and worldwide. Wheel of Fortune provides an authoritative account of this vital industry from the last years of communism to its uncertain future. Tracking the interdependence among Russias oil industry, politics, and economy, Thane Gustafson shows how the stakes extend beyond international energy security to include the potential threat of a destabilized Russia.
Few have studied the Russian oil and gas industry longer or with a broader political perspective than Gustafson. The result is this superb book, which is not merely a fascinating, subtle history of the industry since the Soviet Unions collapse but also the single most revealing work on Russian politics and economics published in the last several years.
