Summary
This work explains how and why large oil-producing corporations have affected government institutions, energy policy, and politics in the United States -- and suggests how their influence can be reduced. It particularly focuses on big oil's impact on U.S. government policy -- regulatory, environmental, and fiscal -- and analyzes big oil's political influence through campaign contributions and lobbying
