The next gulf: London, Washington and oil conflict in Nigeria
"Andy Rowell, James Marriott and Lorne Stockman here set out how western companies have cooperated with local elites in West Africa to maintain control, and they trace a long and ongoing history of colonial and neo-colonial exploitation. Far from the ringing declarations of the G8 Summit, the authors reveal how America and Britain are planning a new century of plunder in Africa."--BOOK JACKET.
