Four conjectures relate the prospect of conflict to oil. First, petroleum production integrates local, regional, national, and global levels of political and economic organization. Second, conflict is likely in these forms of integration, especially under conditions of oil scarcity. Third, oil production in the near future is subject to declining supply and increased demand. Fourth, this means that a looming crisis of oil threatens global integration with violence. Therefore, an urgent social science research priority is the investigation of the nexus between oil, integration, and conflict. Tackling these issues in three different world regions - Africa, Latin America, and Russia - this volume assesses the current state of knowledge concerning oil, integration, and conflict and formulates an anthropological research strategy to advance an understanding of oil and its vicissitudes. Offering a strategy for a global anthropology of oil, this volume strengthens the ability of social science to explain and design policy in a world experiencing a global oil crisis.
