Description
 
A fearless & exacting portrait of a new battleground in the violent politics & passion of oil: Central Asia. The Caspian Sea contains the world’s largest amount of untapped oil & gas resources. Using the concept of the “Great Game”, Kleveman argues that now a New Great Game rages in the region, a modern variant of the 19th-century clash of imperial ambitions of Great Britain & Tsarist Russia. Only this time the stakes are raised. Desperate to wean itself from dependence on the powerful OPEC cartel, the U.S. is now pitted in this struggle against Russia, China, & Iran, all competing for dominance of the Caspian region, its resources & pipeline routes. Also involved are the brash new entrepreneurs who have taken control after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
