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 leading US oil companies. Drawing on her own detailed research into the nation's history with corporate monopolies, Juhasz reminds readers of the story of Standard Oil, the most powerful corporation of the early 20th century, which proved no match for a country awakened with a populist spirit and a demand for action.And she argues that today we are in a similar position: with the wide-open field of the upcoming presidential election heralding a renewal of economic populism in the United States, she suggests that 2008 presents a unique window of opportunity for Americans to challenge the companies that have abused the public trust and the democratic foundation of the United States. With its focus on both policy and activism, "The Tyranny of Oil" is a book with the power to create meaningful change.
