Summary
In the 150 years since the birth of the petroleum industry, oil has saturated our culture, fuelling our cars and wars, our economy and policies. But just as thoroughly, culture saturates oil. So what exactly is 'oil culture'? This book pursues an answer through petrocapitalism's history in literature, film, fine art, wartime propaganda, and museum displays. Investigating cultural discourses that have taken shape around oil, the book offers the first sustained attempt to understand how petroleum has suffused the Western imagination
