Reviews

'This fascinating and intriguing book rightly claims to contribute to the field of international political economy. It describes and analyzes in considerable detail Israel's oil diplomacy during the first fifteen years of statehood, and the extremely adverse circumstances under which the country's energy suppliers were procured. At the time, petroleum was the only practical source of energy for Israel's rapidly growing population and its expanding and modernizing economy.' - Nachum T. Gross, EH. NET
