Oil and the Killing of the American Consul in Tehran explores the Anglo-American tensions over the control of oil in Iraq and Persia after WWI and the impact of American Vice-Consul Robert Imbrie's murder. Using evidence from U.S. State Department documents, this detailed work argues that Imbrie was the victim of a conspiracy aimed at consolidating British power in the region.
