Not many academics can write as clearly and convincingly at Michael Ross in The Oil Curse. After describing the controversy in chapters one and two, Ross focuses on three aspects of petroleum's impact: its relation to democracy, oil and women's role, and whether oil wealth leads to more violence. These three chapters have technical appendices, which delve into the statistical aspects that will only be of interest to academics like myself. There is no better book available on the market. Economists and political scientists should read Ross's book and use it in their courses.
