Inhaltsangabe: Edwin Black has produced an explosive, eye-opening expose of the corporate forces that have for more than a century sabotaged the creation of alternative energies and vehicles in order to keep us dependent on oil. There is enough truth in this book to revolutionize our way of life. Winner of four awards for editorial excellence: American Society of Journalists and Authors Best Book, Thomas Edison Award, Green Globes, AJPA Rockower Award.
?As usual, Edwin Black puts all his readers in his debt by his lucid, dramatic and thought-provoking discoveries. Internal Combustion is a story that should be read by everyone concerned about the strange realities of our modern world. An indispensable contribution to the story of oil and travel: the twin pillars of our modern dilemma. A true page turner.

The chain of events recounted in Internal Combustion reveals one of the sleaziest actions ever taken for financial gain?it has resulted in increasing and continuing public health and political problems for the people of the world. It is a scandal most people will understand only after reading this book
