A History Of Royal Dutch Shell

£49.99

Product description

From its creation in 1907 Royal Dutch Shell has played a key role in the global oil industry. This authoritative and meticulously researched history three volume history provides an unparalleled account of the company's rich and diverse history. It shows how access to oil was both the cause of many a conflict, and a key to victory in wars fought for other causes. Oil powered the economy and provided the raw materials for products such as plastics, detergents, and pesticides which radically changed our culture and material environment. The first volume, by Joost Jonker and Jan Luiten van Zanden covers the development of Royal Dutch Shell from the foundation of the two main constituting companies until the outbreak of the Second World War. The second volume by Stephen Howarth and Joost Jonker takes the story from the Outbreak of the Second World War to the first oil crisis of 1973. Volume three by Keetie Sluyterman highlights how Shell faced up to the nationalisations in the oil industry in the 1970's, and to the challenges of collapsing oil prices in the 1980's; and concludes in the 21st century when once again nationalisations and concerns about oil supply resurfaced, and how the two parent companies were finally unified. Based on unrestricted access to Royal Dutch Shell's archives, these beautifully designed and illustrated books provide a unique insight into one of the world's great companies.

The 3 Volumes and the appendix form 4 separate hardback books, in a hard transparent plastic case. The appendix comes with three DVD's (PAL format) Used, some scratching and paint marks on plastic case, light tearing on dust jackets. Otherwise in very good condition.
