Big oil and gas versus Democracy-Winner takes all.

In 2010, the words “earthquake swarm’ entered the lexicon in Oklahoma. With Maddow’s trademark black humor, she takes us on a switchback journey around the globe, revealing the greed and incompetence of Big Oil and Gas along the way, and drawing a surprising conclusion about why the Russian government hacked the 2016 U.S. election.

Russia’s Richest Resource

She shows Russia’s rich reserves of crude have, paradoxically, stunted its growth, forcing Putin to maintain his power by spreading Russia’s rot into its rivals, its neighbors, the west’s most important alliances, and The United States, Chevron, BP, and a host of other industry players get their star turn, most notably ExxonMobil, and the deceptively well-behaved Rex Tillerson.oil field

The Weakening Of Democracy By Oil And Gas

The oil and gas industry has weakened democracies in developing countries, fouled oceans and rivers, and propped up authoritarian thieves and killers. But being outraged at it is, according to Maddow, “like being indigent when a lion takes down and eats a gazelle. You can’t really blame the lion, its in her nature.” Maddow also writes: “Democracy either wins this one or disappears.”

Kirkus Review-Thoughts And Comments

Kirkus writes “The author may be a popular, progressive news-and-commentator anchor on MSNBC, but it is not to be forgotten that she holds a doctorate in politics from Oxford and seems to devour whole libraries of data before breakfast each day.”

1) Comment By Robert: “Miss Maddow is a brilliant and important journalist who has inspired concerned Americans with her dedicated work. I can only be sure that her new book will only add to her legacy.”

2) Comment By Jeanne: “I watch the Rachel Maddow Show regularly and always learn something important. She presents profound details that lurk behind the headlines clearly, entertainingly and often frighteningly. Sometimes after watching Rachel’s Show, I sleep better, other times, I sleep with one-eye open. Either way, I can’t wait to discuss what I learned with others who have made watching her show part of the routine things they do in their lives. So, of course, I have just ordered, Blowout.”

3) Comment By Julie: “I just read Blowout, and I will tell you that it was the most informative book that I have ever read, she nailed it on this one. Unbelievable insight into the oil and gas industry and how it ties in with Putin and rich industries such as Exxon Mobil, wow, great read.”


I have read this book Blowout and I will tell you that it is scary to me about how the oil and gas industry is so connected to Russia and Russian Oleguards, how our American oil and gas heavy weights are all intertwined with Russia and the big money that goes with that. Amazing book, and I will give this book 5 stars.

I think this website is one important site for everyone who cares about the future of this planet, the books are great and the reviews are honest and good, I would consider making the site in another template to get a more professional look but the content is great, but it needs to reach out to more people so maybe the design can be a little bit better

Thank you Razvanllie for your comment, greatly appreciated and it is a wonderfully educational book for all, one of the best books that I have read and it takes you into the big oil and gas industries in Russia and how it relates to these times, especially during this presidency. Something to watch for in the up-coming months when the whole truth comes out about Donald Trump and Putin an what really ties them together in my opinion, follow the money with Trump, always.
