Description du produit

Revue de presse

"Spellbinding...irresistible...monumental...must be read to understand the first thing about the role of oil in modern history." -- The New York Times

"Splendid and epic history of oil.... The story is brilliantly told...with its remarkable cast of characters." -- The Wall Street Journal

"Impassioned and riveting...only in the great epics of Homer will readers regularly run into a comparable string of larger-than-life swashbucklers and statesmen, heroes and villains." -- San Francisco Examiner

The Prize est l'ouvrage de référence retraçant l'histoire de l'industrie du pétrole depuis le milieu du 19e siècle en partant des Pays-Bas, du Royaume-Uni et naturellement des Etats-Unis.
The Prize est écrit dans un style narratif et non professoral rendant cette histoire qui vous mènera en Europe, en Asie mineure, aux Etats-Unis d'autant plus passionnante.
Daniel YERGIN s'emploie à retracer cette histoire avec beaucoup de justesse et de détail permettant d'éclairer et de comprendre le fonctionnement actuel du marché du pétrole, les conflits associés à l'exploitation de "l'or noir" et la place des grandes firmes (à noter que les pages sur l'histoire de la Standard Oil sont passionnantes).

Prix du pétrole élevé et crise gazière obligent, l'époque est à nouveau à l'intérêt pour les questions énergétiques et les ouvrages plus ou moins spécialisés fleurissent en librairie.
Choisissez plutôt d'investir dans cette somme de D. Yergin qui, si elle a plus de 10 ans, reste remarquable et absolument éclairante sur les problématiques pétrolières contemporaines. "The Prize" est en effet le parfait exemple de ce que les meilleurs auteurs anglo-saxons savent faire: un livre érudit, extrêmement fouillé, aux analyses lumineuses, mais qui se lit comme un roman, car il fourmille d'anecdotes et de portraits. A recommander!

Ce livre remarquable présente l'histoire du pétrole.

Il a été écrit il y a 10 ans, mais les leçons qu'on peut en tirer sont toujours valables.

Un seul exemple : la matière première qui a été la plus stratégique de toute la seconde guerre mondiale, qui est une des causes fondamentales de Pearl Harbour et de Stalingrad, c'est le pétrole.

Ce livre permet de mieux comprendre les 150 dernières années de l'histoire.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Age of Oil 5 avril 2012
Par K. H. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is the definitive book on the "Age of Oil" and its journey from fruition to modern day. Incredibly well researched and insightful. The Prize describes how this once seemingly useless substance served as a platform for building global economies and increasing human productivity. Oil; money; power ... the terms are synonymous. Rockefeller, Getty, Rothschild, and others became the wealthiest to have ever lived at the time. You must read this book to understand the true nature of oil's impact on our society.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book covering oil's history and it's unprecedented influence on Global Affairs for over 100 years 23 juin 2017

Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
If you want to know oil's history and story, and why it remains a dominant feature of humans' existence for the last 100 years, this is the book for you. Along with oil's story, you will learn the how and why driver of many of the historical events of the last 100 years.

Given this book's scholarship, the writing is clear and will likely hold your interest as you become educated about the dominant player in the ubiquitous Energy Industry.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great perspective relating control of a resource with human behavior and survival of nations 3 octobre 2015
Par John Rumpf - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is basically a history of the use of oil from its earliest mass production days in the mid 1800's up to today. This could be a dry topic but is written mainly as a series of narratives about the characters in the search of, production of, and control of the resource. The character driven approach makes this a surprisingly easy read for a fairly long book.
It focuses on the effects of oil on the economies of both consuming and producing nations as well how access to oil affects the political power of nations. It makes clear how this access to the energy source affected all nations and was a huge driver in transforming the global economy.
Highly recommended.

Par Jim S. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
One of my top five. Well written and researched, believe it or not it is very entertaining to read. It will give you a new respect for this civilization changing resource. We as a society take Oil entirely for granted, our way of life is dependent upon it. Would you rather live in 1817 or 2017, think about it. There is a component of oil in everything that surrounds us. You can't manufacture iphones, electric cars, solar panels and wind turbines without it. It makes no sense to export a precious finite resource, and it makes a lot of sense to use our enemy's supply first. We all need to learn some history to gain a proper perspective.

Par JamesAWhitehead - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is the third copy of this book that I have purchased. The first two are on my shelf, and the third I gave away at a white elephant gift exchange.

I originally found out about this book through an Energy Economics course I was taking during my undergrad at Michigan Technological University. The course was a hybrid undergraduate/graduate course, and one of the differentiators was that the graduate students had to read The Prize and write a paper on it.

This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the oil industry, its history, its geopolitics, and how oil has shaped policy and war for the past 100+ years.
