This book is a more than fascinating story about international politics: "The Great Kush" talks about the growing role of oil in the formation of the 20th century, the "hydrocarbon society" of freeways, suburbs and pollution, as well as the "hydrocarbon man", who is not too inclined to give up those comforts , which provide cars, country houses, and other necessities that rely on oil.

This book is about greed, ambition and lust for power. It's about the people who made the oil industry what it is: from Sheikh Yamana and George W. Bush to Armand Hammer and Saddam Hussein.
