Survival: Global Politics and Strategy The author traces the history and influence of OPEC from its for-mation to its downfall in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History The Rise and Fall of OPEC is a masterful book that contradicts the well-worn but essentialist understandings of oil as the root of authoritarianism, Middle East wars or environmental catastrophe.

Robert Vitalis Garavini does much more than simply set the record straight. He reorients our view of the international organization away from the overblown and exaggerated accounts of oil-weapon-wielding-sovereigns holding the West hostage.

Gregory Brew Garavini's book is more than a history of OPEC, "one of the most recognizable acronyms in the world" (9). It aspires to be a global history of oil's role in shaping the twentieth century.

David Painter The Rise and Fall of OPEC in the Twentieth Century is an outstanding contribution to the international history of the twentieth century and deserves a wide audience.

Ellen R. Wald This is not just a book about oil markets, the economy, and the oil industry. Scholars of energy and geopolitics will find a succinct and focused analysis of the development of Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) 'petrostates,' the organization itself and the role it played the economic and political development of the twentieth century.

Clemens Huemeriehner, Sehepunkte Garavini has made an important contribution to the history of the oil resource ... The author's courage to pursue a large number of actors over a long period of time leads to a complex narrative that will be the reference to OPEC's history for the foreseeable future...

Jonas Kreienbaum, Historical Institute, University Rostock convincing history of the organization

Gerald Butt, Petroleum Economist Garavini's book is well researched and full of interesting details.

Robin Mills, The National ... a unique look into the organisation's internal decision-making... detailed and carefully researched book... a corrective to western-centric accounts of the organisation and an essentia...
