The Magical State.


The role of oil in international politics, especially in Latin America, has always had its explosive and exciting moments, but this book lays bare this process more clearly than most, if any. Further, President Clinton had just visited the "magical state" of Venezuela the week before this interview was videotaped and had claimed he was making arrangements for the United States to get more oil there than from Saudi Arabia. The author is a professor of Anthropology at the University of Michigan.
