About the Book

The region above the Arctic Circle accounts for only about six per cent of the Earth’s surface area, but holds nearly one-fifth of the world’s recoverable oil and natural gas. The book, Resource Wars: Mapping Global Greed, tells the fascinating story of global competition for the Earth’s natural resources, even in the remotest corners of the world. Broadly cataloguing the resources available to mankind on this planet, the book also notes how technology for their extraction is a key determinant of winners and losers among nations fighting for oil, uranium, even the sun, sea and sand. Within its jackets, the book brings to its readers a comprehensive global overview of Earth’s assets and a perspective on the fatal exploitation that is creating an irreparable ecological imbalance.
