    Any person with leanings toward the left or the right of the political spectrum will find this an interesting read..Oil & the Glory is very insightful regarding political maneuverings of the major Anglo American oil companies , US Government (through the Whitehouse & State Department), former Soviet Caspian Republics & Russia.. He uses primary sources (interviews) and secondary sources ( mainly NYT and WSJ). A Very good read.. I found it both intelectually stimulating & at times entertaining in an armchair like way .. he brings to life the personalites of the brokers, corporate executives & politicians involved. Levine Focuses on the period from glasnost to July 07
