This major two-volume work provides a country-by-country analysis of African oil and gas. Divided into north and central Africa (Volume I) and east, west and southern Africa (Volume II), the book details the oil and gas frameworks and the key concerns in the most significant jurisdictions. Topics addressed include the key terms of the petroleum laws, the types of legal arrangement in place (eg, concession agreement, production sharing contract or service agreement), the fiscal terms, the acquisition of acreage, governing law, dispute resolution mechanisms and governmental control. Volume I on north and central Africa includes both traditional petroleum producing countries, such as Libya, Algeria, Angola and Egypt, and more recent areas with significant potential, such as Chad, Morocco and Sudan. In Volume II on east, west and southern Africa, traditional producing countries in the west Africa such as Nigeria and Gabon are joined by frontier areas such as Mozambique, Tanzania, Ghana and Madagascar. Covering more than 40 countries, this book features contributions from a variety of leading experts in the industry, including from ministries of petroleum, national oil companies, international oil companies, law firms and consultancies. This unique new work will provide a wider understanding of oil and gas law, contracts and regulations within the African continent.


A Knight At The Movies

RRP $272.99

Long before "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," Hollywood's version of the Middle Ages had sometimes been laughable. Who can resist chuckling at "The Black Knight" (1954), in which Arthurian warriors ride across a plain complete with telephone poles in the background? Or "The Black Shield of Falworth" (1954), in which Tony Curtis-in his best medieval Bronx accent-utters the immortal line, "Yonda is the castle of my fodda"? These films may not be paragons of historical accuracy, but much of what we know-or think we know-about the Middle Ages has been dictated by what we've seen on the movie screen.
In this entertaining and deeply informative book, John Aberth-author of From the Brink of the Apocalypse-assesses the historical accuracy of well known cinematic interpretations of the Middle Ages. Separating fact from fiction in more than fifty films from the silent era to today, including "Camelot, Excalibur, Braveheart," and "The Adventures of Robin Hood," Aberth shows how narrative license routinely makes the distant era familiar by projecting contemporary obsessions and fears onto the past. These stock images of knights in shining armor and damsels in distress rarely sum up real life in the Middle Ages. Instead, the best and most thought-provoking works-like Ingmar Bergman's "The Seventh Seal"-revel in the differences between those times and our own, drawing us into another world in order to understand and appreciate the differences.
With provocative insight into the blurred lines between medieval fact and fiction, both history buffs and film aficionados will find much food for thought here.
