In her new book, Antonia Juhasz investigates the true state of the U.S. oil industry—uncovering its virtually unparalleled influence over our elected officials, its lack of regulatory oversight, and the powers at play behind the leading company's highest profit rates in corporate history. Within this detailed assessment of the current state of affairs, Juhasz offers an immediate call to action—a formula for reining in the industry, cutting down its governmental lobbying powers, and reducing world's dependence on oil. With major players in America's most powerful industry charged with collusion, price-gouging, anti-competitive behavior, and unabashed greed, Juhasz proposes a viable answer—the ultimate break-up of the nation's leading oil companies.

Antonia Juhasz is a leading expert on international trade and finance policy and the author of The Bush Agenda: Invading the World, One Economy at a Time. A fellow with Oil Change International and the Institute for Policy Studies, she has served as an aide to two U.S. members of Congress and holds as Masters degree in Public Policy from Georgetown University. An award-winning writer and frequent media commentator, her work has been featured in dozens of publications, including the New York Times, International Herald Tribune, Los Angeles Times, Petroleum Review Magazine, and Alternet.org . She has appeared on Kudlow & Company, National Public Radio's Diane Rehm Show and Marketplace, Washington Journal, Hannity & Colmes, and Democracy Now! among many other shows. She lives in San Francisco, CA.
