Extrait de la couverture : "Depuis les attentats du 11 septembre, le monde a assisté à une véritable accélération de l'Histoire. L'année 2002 a été marquée notamment par des tensions internationales croissantes, par la volte-face des Etats-Unis au Moyen-Orient, le renversement des alliances et par le rôle ambigu de certains alliés des Américains, l'Arabie Saoudite en tête. Autant de sujtes qui n'ont pas échappé à la sagacité de Pierre Marie Gallois ... Appuyant son argumentation sur des faits précis et des chiffres irréfutables, il expose, avec méthode et concision, comment les Etats-Unis ont profité des attentats pour inaugurer une nouvelle stratégie visant, à termes, le contrôle des ressources énergétiques de la planète."
