Extracting sovereignty: Capital, territory, and gold mining in Tanzania. Energy, Machines, and the Forces of Capital 2. Huber traces the answer from the 1930s through the oil shocks of the 1970s to our present predicament, revealing that oil's role in defining popular culture extends far beyond material connections between oil, suburbia, and automobility. While the work is very focused on the United States, and should be read in conjunction with Anderas Malm's book, it is an important work and environmentalists and socialists will get a lot from reading it.

In so doing he uses oil to retell American political history from the triumph of New Deal liberalism to the rise of the New Right, from oil's celebration as the lifeblood of postwar capitalism to increasing anxieties over oil addiction.

Antipode 43 2 : 195-198 editorial on the 2010 Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill. It's a story of dodgy dealings, strikes and repressive measures and state intervention.

The cries of 'no blood for oil' assume oil is a trivial 'thing' but a more effective antipetroleum politics must struggle against the more banal forms through which oil-based life gets naturalised as common sense. History has shown that workers have frequently rebelled against a system, or aspects of that system, despite it not being in their immediate interest the struggle by workers in the munitions industry against World War One is one example. How did gasoline and countless other petroleum products become so central to our notions of the American way of life? In order to do that, he examines four distinct periods in the long-term development of petro-capitalism in the United States: overproduction and collapsing prices in the 1930s, the era of stable and cheap- enough oil between 1945 and 1973, and the oil crises in the 1970s and 2000s. Today, Huber tells us, as crises attributable to oil intensify, a populist clamoring for cheap energy has less to do with American excess than with the eroding conditions of life under neoliberalism. It's a story of dodgy dealings, strikes and repressive measures and state intervention.
