Praise For Untapped: The Scramble for Africa's Oil…
" ... [a] deftly reported book ... "
"Ghazvinian, who has a doctorate in history from Oxford, a sure hand with economic theory, and a journalist''s touch for capturing the telling detail, delivers an account that would be wildly entertaining if the story he was telling wasn''t so full of heartbreaking poverty, venality, corruption and violence."
"Untapped is John Ghazvinian''s riveting account and superb analysis of what African oil means to a fuel-hungry world and to the African nations involved."
"Like the cars that might one day make the Western world a bit less reliant on crude oil, Untapped is a hybrid; part travelogue, part analysis and part lament. It is also well timed."
