The Party's Over deals head-on with the imminent decline of cheap oil. It shows how oil and war have been closely related for the the past century, and how competition to control oil supplies is likely to lead to new resource wars in the Middle East, Central Asia, and South America. A riveting wake-up call that does for oil depletion what Rachel Carson's Silent Spring did for the issue of chemical pollution - i.e. raising to consciousness a previously ignored global problem of immense proportions - The Party's Over is essential reading for all those concerned with the future of modern life as we know it.
