Описание: A Pipeline Runs Through It is a fresh, comprehensive in-depth look at the social, economic, political and geopolitical forces involved in our transition to the modern oil age. It tells an extraordinary story, from the pre-industrial history of petroleum through to large-scale production in the mid-19th century and the development of a dominant, fully-fledged oil industry by the early 20th century. Petroleum was used as an adhesive by Neanderthals, as a waterproofing agent in Noahs Ark and as a weapon during the Crusades. Its eventual extraction from the earth in vast quantities transformed light, heat and power. This was always a story of imperialist violence, political disenfranchisement, economic exploitation and environmental destruction. The near total eradication of the Native Americans of New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio has barely been mentioned as a precondition for the emergence of the first industrialised oil region in the United States. Britains invasion of Upper Burma in 1885 was perhaps the first war fought, at least in part, for access to oil; the growth of Royal Dutch-Shell involved genocidal fighting and the exploitation of oil in the Middle East arose seamlessly out of Britains prior political and military interventions in the region. Finally, in an entirely new analysis, the book shows how British navys increasingly desperate dependence on vulnerable foreign sources of oil may have been a catalytic ingredient in the outbreak of the First World War.

The stories in this book all take place during a time of upheaval in the country. Independence from the British has happened, but the influence left behind by colonialism is still very much in evidence in the period before the Sudan divides in two. These British expats are in the country for various reasons, some prompted by a desire to visit Africa, others because they want to get away from home. They have different jobs, working for the university, an aid agency or in business, but they are all connected. They are linked by the Sudan Club, the remains of the British colonialist clubs and still the centre of the expat community, to which they are all drawn, and by their experiences of the changes that come with the introduction of Sharia law and the unrest of the divided country.

Expats in Nigeria is an unusual collection of short stories inspired by Keith Fisher's experiences when living and working in Africa during the 1970s and 1980s. He introduces us to many colourful characters and recounts events that are both touching and humorous and which give us a taste of post-colonial Nigeria.

This collection is an important glimpse into the social history of the British in Nigeria during those years, and we learn a great deal through Keith's telling of the anecdotes and real-life stories of the people who lived there.

Keith developed his interest in short stories having listened to his Uncle Percy, who was a great storyteller.
