The Economist reviews 3 books about politics and oil.

Peter O'Dell trashes (again) the assertion that we're running out of gas because he says the argument ignores technology and economics (as it did 30 years ago).

Michael Klare puts oil geopolitics in perspective by showing that the current American support for not-nice regimes where most of the current proven reserves happen to be is a bipartisan development over the years.

Lastly, the Rocky Mountain Institute puts out a collection of articles on Winning the Oil Endgame; ideas for getting around the decreasing supply of fossil fuels and still keep our economies from plunging down the toilet.
