Addicted to Oil by Rutledge, Ian
Addicted to Oil: America's Relentless Drive for Energy Security
by Rutledge, Ian
 
As even George W. Bush acknowledged in his 2006 State of the Union, America is dangerously ""addicted to oil"". In Addicted to Oil, Ian Rutledge explores the political, economic and social ramifications of the motorization of the US economy and examines the ways in which America's dependence on the car has created oil needs which have heavily influenced US foreign policy. Rutledge argues that the invasion and occupation of Iraq was primarily an attempt to create a pliant and dependable oil protectorate in that troubled region which would underwrite the soaring demand from America's hyper-motorized consumers.
