A shrewd account of one of the corporate West's most intriguing affairs. Frederic Clairmont highlights how oil giant British Petroleum played a central allbeit damaging role during a pivotal chapter in the history of anti-imperial struggle.
Chronicling the 1951 Iranian nationalisation of their oil assets by Mohammad Mossadeq, Clairmont charts how BP led a devestating counterstrike to ensure Iranian oil was not used to subsidize genuine economic and political independance for Iran.
In short this pamphlet examines how a government backed corporate goliath would do anything to stay in the corridors of imperial power, whilst dismantling another regimes chances for a better degree of democracy and social harmony.
A must read for anyone interested in corporate politics.
