GREG MUTTITT is the author of Fuel on the Fire: Oil and Politics in Occupied Iraq. He was previously co-director of campaigning charity Platform, which exposes and fights the environmental and human impacts of the oil industry. Since the Iraq war started in 2003, Muttitt has investigated the hidden plans for the future of the country’s oil. Now, in a gripping account of the war that dominated US and UK foreign policy over the last decade, he takes us behind the scenes to reveal the previously untold story of the oil politics that played out through the occupation of Iraq.
