Oil and Politics (English)
Oil and Politics is the first book by Rasul Gouliev, a former Soviet oil executive intimately familiar with the industry and all the surrounding politics. Gouliev is in a unique position to enlighten readers about the difficulties related to changes in the division of control of the Caspian Sea – where formerly two states, the Soviet Union and Iran, shared control.
New evolving relations in the Caspian basin have paramount importance for bilateral relations of these states with Russia, Europe, the Middle East and the United Sates. The establishment of a New Economic Order, and the consolidation of true democratic polities are, in Gouliev’s opinion, required pre-conditions for assuring the peaceful development of this region, a vital international hub of our civilization.
