Résumé

Anand Toprani’s Oil and the Great Powers: Britain and Germany, 1914 to 1945 (Oxford University Press, 2019) describes how the failure of Britain and Germany to secure oil supplies undermined each country’s hegemonic ambitions over three decades. Leveraging archival records and the model of comparative history, Toprani pens a work replete with insights for historians of energy and geopolitics.
