The Fuad Rouhani Diaries is a meticulous record of Rouhani’s daily activities and experiences as the first secretary general of OPEC (1961- 1964). Converging Rouhani’s notes with the oil company records and the British, US, and French government archives, Editors Gholamreza Tadjbakhsh and Farrokh Najmabadi have brilliantly contexualized the diaries by prefacing the volume with a comprehensive account of the strategies and tactics employed by the OPEC member countries, on one hand, and the oil companies and their supporting governments, on the other. The result is an enticing and informative study of petro-politics at the dawn of OPEC.
