‘This book superbly illustrates how the UK’s toxic relationship with oil has defined our politics, our lives and our culture. An engrossing read’ – Jon King, Gang of Four
Join James Marriott, Terry Macalister and a wide-ranging panel for this special launch event marking the release of Crude Britannia: How Oil Shaped a Nation, published by Pluto Press, as part of Radical May.
Taking the reader on a journey from North East Scotland, Merseyside and South Wales to the Thames Estuary and London, this is the story of Britain’s oil-drenched past, present and future; of a black gold empire built on financial power, political meddling and environmental destruction.
