9780006374084: Yamani: The Inside Story

For over two decades Ahmed Zaki Yamani was oil minister for Saudi Arabia and the force behind OPEC. He was one of the most powerful figures in Saudi Arabian politics and accumulated an enormous personal fortune. This account of his rise and fall reveals the events which eventually overthrew him.

From Publishers Weekly:

This biography of Saudi Arabia's Western-educated petroleum minister during 25 years of oil-industry boom and bust clarifies some mysteries of recent history. In crisp, straightforward sentences ("With their commercial interests on the line the four Aramco partners . . . started to sweat."), Robinson ( The Minus Millionaires ) describes how Ahmed Zaki Yamani's close relationship with King Faisal, and his own urbane intelligence, made him the dominant industry figure worldwide as the oil business weathered Arab-Israeli wars, Iran's revolution and the gaspump-panic shortages and ensuing oil-glut market collapse brought on by OPEC, the producing nations' fractious pricing cartel. Faisal's assassination in Yamani's presence in 1975, and the subsequent kidnapping of the oil minister by terrorists 11 years later, add high drama to a saga that ends with Yamani's dismissal.

From Library Journal:

This is a journalist's biography of Ahmed Zaki Yamani, an attorney who served as the powerful Saudi Arabian Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources from March 1962 to October 1986. During this period, largely due to political maneuverings by Yamani, Saudi oil was placed more under the control of the Saudi government rather than the Arab American Oil Company (ARAMCO). It was Yamani, Robinson points out, who engineered the 1973 oil embargo against the West. The author provides additional inside information on the workings of the international oil cartel OPEC, as well as the arguments and feuds within the ruling families of Saudi Arabia, which ultimately caused Yamani's decline in power. This book is for anyone interested in Saudi Arabian politics or oil. Well recommended.
